Research Interests:  My research interests include disease ecology, molecular biology, genetics, and related fields. For my dissertation, I study tuberculosis, Campylobacter jejuni, and leptospirosis in banded mongoose (Mungos mungo) in the Chobe District of northern Botswana. My research consists of developing disease diagnostics, evaluating pathogen shedding kinetics, and assessing coinfection dynamics across space and time in the context of human, animal, and environmental health.
