My research focuses on the use of analytic and molecular epidemiology to study Salmonella and other foodborne pathogens at the pre-harvest level. Work is targeted at minimizing zoonotic transmission of pathogens that threaten food safety, as well as reducing disease burden among veterinary species. Additional areas of interest include emerging infectious diseases, antimicrobial resistance, and hospital biosecurity.
