At the intersection of disease ecology and conservation biology, my research at the University of Notre Dame broadly examines environmental anthropogenic change and how it affects the pathogen dynamics of at-risk wildlife species like amphibians. I aim to utilize my multidisciplinary background to bridge the gap between the natural and social sciences by examining unresoved questions about infectious disease through a new sociobiological lens.
