Our research focus is the epidemiology and ecology of infectious diseases in animal and human populations. We combine data, epidemiological analysis and mathematical models to study transmission mechanisms with emphasis on the role that environment plays on transmission and the dissemination of antimicrobial resistant pathogens. Our program spans a range of pathogen-host systems including foodborne pathogens in farm animals and health-care associated diseases in humans.
