Our research focuses on how ecological changes, such as climate change and other perturbations to ecosystems, alter the epidemiology of infectious diseases in wildlife and people within such changing ecosystems.

Vector-Borne DiseaseDisease surveillance3

Diseases transmitted by ticks and mosquitoes are an emerging public health threat in Canada. We are looking at how climate warming and land-use change alter the ecology and epidemiology of vector-borne diseases at the local, regional and continental scales. Much of this work is carried in collaboration with other Canadian researchers and stakeholders through the Canadian Lyme Disease Research Network (
