Project Title: 
Disease Ecology, Data Analytics, and Animal Health

Research in the VanderWaal lab focuses on disease ecology, data analytics, network analysis, and animal health. The goal of this research is to understand factors mediating pathogen transmission processes and to model the spread of animal diseases. The research group integrates methods and tools from multiple disciplines in order to investigate novel questions about pathogen transmission dynamics. Research areas include disease ecology, transmission processes at the wildlife-livestock interfaces, network modeling of livestock diseases using animal movement databases, and big data approaches for advancing animal health.
