I am primarily interested in studying wildlife disease ecology in a way that will benefit management and prevention of disease outbreaks. I utilize statistical modeling to guide field work that will help elucidate the relationships between hosts, pathogens, and the environment, particularly concerning wildlife reservoirs. At present I am hoping to apply this system to white-nose syndrome in bats to identify novel conservation approaches for a devastating disease.
