Our research spans from theoretical to practical policy advice with an emphasis on understanding and forecasting the impact of disease control intervention(s) in disease dispersion.
Our team is working to develop methods, models, and tools that can improve infectious disease control efforts for a variety of diseases affecting domestic animal populations, especially swine. We focus on building interpretable models that can be used by industries and veterinary services to make informative decisions.
