I am an Extension Associate in the Department of Population Medicine and Diagnostic Science at Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine, working in the Wildlife Health Laboratory. Prior to moving to Ithaca, I worked at the USGS National Wildlife Health Center in Madison, WI where I was involved in research to develop oral wildlife vaccines to prevent plague in prairie dogs and white-nose syndrome in bats. I gained experience in captive animal studies, field work, laboratory assays, data management and analysis, and regulatory issues pertaining to wildlife vaccines. I am interested in zoonotic diseases and the interactions of wildlife, domestic animals, and humans.
I hold a BA in mathematics, MS in epidemiology, and a DVM.
