In my lab, we focus on eco-immunology, wildlife microbiomes and infectious disease dynamics, working across a range of wildlife species, from birds to mammals to snails. Our research involves both in-field and laboratory work, combining genetic, immunological, epidemiological, and ecological data towards understanding disease transmission dynamics and their impact on wildlife health, human health, and species conservation.
