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.
