My research integrates field ecology, animal behavior, statistics, mathematical modeling, remote sensing, microbiology, virology and genetics to address wildlife disease, conservation and management issues. No single person can develop the necessary expertise in all of these fields, so I collaborate with a team of academics and managers. There are two central themes in my research: (1) the integration of empirical data and mathematical modeling, and (2) the effects of host behavior and social structure on disease dynamics.
