Research Interests

Preserving endangered species and educating the public are two things I enjoy most about being a veterinarian working with diverse zoological taxa. I am very interested in emerging and zoonotic diseases in wildlife and how they can impact public health. In addition, I am also particularly interested in infectious diseases, as well as anesthesia in zoological species.
