Research Summary

I am engaged in research looking at human animal health interactions, including transmission of zoonotic disease and animals serving as sentinels for biological, chemical, and physical health hazards in the environment (like the "canary in the coalmine").

I also research the effects of noise on health, particularly noise-induced hearing loss and its prevention.

Extensive Research Description

  • Occupational infectious disease risks in animal farm workers (swine workers and poultry workers)
  • Pandemic influenza prevention in swine workers
  • Global surveillance of emerging infectious disease in wildlife (USAID PREDICT)
  • Intervention study for Prevention of noise induced hearing loss
  • Intervention study of "One Health" approach to prevention of zoonotic diseases in developing country setting.
  • Study of health and occupational illness and injury in veterinary technicians.
