Predicting disease dynamics in wildlife

Datasets on disease spread in human and wildlife populations are increasing in size and variety. This project will address how can we best understand and predict host-pathogen dynamics in wildlife populations and whether we can predict the risk posed to human populations from zoonoses through the study of their dynamics in their wildlife reservoirs.

 

We have also written a Disease Model Simulator (click to go to tool page) to accompany the publications below which allows the user to investigate our theoretical model of cowpox-like diseases in rodent populations.
