Vector-borne pathogen ecology

My main research interest deals with understanding of factors underlying the ecology of vector-borne pathogens through disentangling host-vector-pathogen relationships at a population level.

Wild ungulates and ticks are the main model employed for understanding vector-host-pathogen interactions.
