Research Projects

Dr. Varga’s research program evaluates infectious diseases at the interface of humans, animals, and the environment by assessing geographic differences in disease rates and investigating their environmental, genetic, socioeconomic, and demographic risk factors.

To achieve their goals they use maps, data synthesis, statistical methods, and spatio-temporal models to identify significant patterns and forecast future conditions. Their research findings aid human and animal health stakeholders in reducing illnesses and ensuring optimal health.
