Research Interests:
My own research focuses studying impacts of environmental stressors on parasites and aquatic animal health. In terms of this network, I am interested in helminth zoonoses transmitted via fish or other aquatic organisms, and also on protozoans (e.g. Cryptosporidium, Giardia) transmitted via contaminated water sources.
