I’m a medical/health geographer and a spatial disease ecologist. My research intersects in geography, disease ecology, and movement ecology. I employ GIS, geospatial statistical analysis, and ecological simulation modeling to understand disease spillover and transmission dynamics at the livestock-wildlife-human interface. My other research interests also extend to conservation and public/veterinary health.
