Research Interests

Our new global and technological age presents new opportunities, as well as new challenges and hazards. Critically, most emerging human and domestic animal diseases come directly from the interaction of people or livestock with animals in the wild. It is important that key players and stakeholders have the crucial information necessary to provide essential public education that will make a difference in prevention and successful eradication, as well as prompt recognition and treatment. Animal diseases, particularly zoonotic diseases, result in millions of lost Canadian dollars. Wildlife conservation and disease epidemiology provides real and tangible opportunities to help repair and increasingly prevent some of the human ecological damage to our planet while preventing further disease developments and reduce the increasing number of new emerging diseases.
