Research Interests

Antimicrobial resistance is a public health concern experienced globally. The loss of effective antimicrobials is reducing our ability to protect the public from infectious diseases, with profound impacts on our healthcare system, global trade, agriculture, environment and health sectors. Furthermore, antimicrobial resistance threatens the effective prevention and treatment of an ever-increasing range of infections caused by bacteria, parasites, viruses and fungi. Therefore, it is an increasingly serious threat to global public health that requires collaborative action. The One Health initiative’s interdisciplinary approach for addressing infectious diseases are crucial towards encouraging improved global public health and for a better understanding of disease epidemiology.
