I am a Lecturer in Spatial Epidemiology. I spent most of my research in developing and implementing geostatistical spatio-temporal models for veterinary, zoonotic and human diseases (e.g. trypanosomiasis, Dengue, malaria, Schmallenberg, Bluetongue), biological systems and earth science. My main interests are in the inclusion of biological process (e.g. population dynamics) in geographic statistical frameworks; and in the development of new protocols for risk assessment of vector-borne diseases within one-health risk governance.
