Welcome to the QDEC Lab!
Quantitative Disease Ecology & Conservation Lab Group
We work on ecology at the human interface, and its implications for disease, conservation, sustainability, and wildlife management.
Our interdisciplinary work incorporates tools from medical geography, quantitative and applied ecology, and the social sciences. We use techniques from the lab to the field to the computer to the white board.
We play well with others, and welcome collaborations.
