research focus

My research topics span animal behavior, disease ecology, wildlife conservation, epidemiology, and public health. I am particularly fascinated by the interplay of behavior and pathogen transmission in social animals, and I find that conducting research at the interface of behavioral ecology and epidemiology can provide important insights for conserving endangered wildlife and maintaining healthy human populations.
