I am a veterinarian (DVM, MPH) currently pursuing a PhD in Microbiology, Immunology, & Pathology at Colorado State University. My research seeks to answer questions surrounding the ecology of viral diseases using a combination of field-based surveillance and in vitro/in vivo techniques.
My professional interests encompass wildlife disease ecology, mechanisms of viral pathogenesis and transmission, phylodynamics, and the application of novel molecular diagnostics to outbreak scenarios.
I am also passionate about science policy and communication.
