My research interests are laboratory methods to detect and measure vaccine response and response to infectious diseases with a primary interest in rabies. Rabies epidemiology and public health efforts to combat infectious diseases are additional areas of focus. My responsibilities involve providing technical support for collaborative studies. Previous studies have been in centered on measurement of correlates of protection against rabies in humans and animals. 


I present lectures on Rabies in DMP722 Veterinary Virology; and am a co-instructor for DMP744, International Public Health and DMP770, Emerging Infectious Diseases.
