Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology
We combine mathematical
and computer models
with field and laboratory data to understand how infectious diseases spread and evolve, and how to reduce their health impacts.
We focus on zoonotic diseases, which are diseases that transmit from animals to humans. Zoonoses make up 60% of all human pathogens and 75% of emerging infections, but are less well-studied than other human infections because their natural history crosses traditional scientific disciplines. We use models to integrate ideas and data from many disciplines, with the aim of answering big questions about zoonotic and emerging pathogens.
