Research Interests

Dr. Uehlinger’s research interests are grounded in a desire to work collaboratively by combining her epidemiology skills, expertise in food animal medicine and her passion for animal health and human livelihoods, both in Canada and abroad.

Her research background lies in veterinary epidemiology, specifically in zoonotic protozoa in livestock and her primary interests include health management of food and production animals from an epidemiologist’s perspective. She currently focuses her research in Canada on calf health and production management.

Dr. Uehlinger also has a particular interest in food security and the socio-economic impact of animal health in resource-constrained communities in Kenya, Laos and Haiti. She is currently involved in collaborative research projects on improving livestock management in context-appropriate ways and which intensify current production systems in a sustainable manner.
