Disease Ecology in Farming Systems
We are investigating the transmission of parasites and pathogens that affect livestock health, or that impact human health (e.g. food-borne illness) in the contexts of landscape, wildlife and farming systems.
Host-Ectoparasite Immunological Interactions
We have ongoing studies in a variety of avian and mammalian systems that are exploring how vertebrate immunological responses affect blood feeding arthropods and pathogen transmission.
