Disease Ecology & Wildlife Conservation

Emerging infectious diseases (EIDs) are one of many human-mediated perturbations threatening wildlife populations, and presenting unique challenges for wildlife conservation. Many EIDs represent novel systems, most often emerging due to changes to the landscape or climate favoring the pathogen, or invading when introduced to new locations and new hosts. My research focuses on investigating key components to the ecology of EIDs that can help inform conservation efforts to mitigate impacts of disease on wildlife populations.
