My background is in Veterinary Medicine (DVM) and terrestrial ecology and biodiversity management (Msc) with a specialisation in wildlife disease ecology and molecular tools. I received my PhD at the University of Queensland in 2020 investigating genetic analysis tools to investigate the role of wildlife in disease transmission in modified environments. As a researcher, I have worked on molecular detection of tick-borne pathogens in Spain, and I worked on developing tools to investigate the role of wildlife in disease transmission in urbanized environments. As a postdoctoral fellow at the Spatial Epidemiology Laboratory (UQ), my research focuses on zoonotic disease transmission and spatiotemporal analysis, and I have a special interest in developing and applying spatial models and network analysis techniques to study disease transmission in wildlife populations.
