Over

I aim to gain insight in how bird populations are affected by emerging pathogens. My project combines detailed studies on avian immune functions, behaviour and movements of wild birds, with integrative eco-epidemiological modelling approaches.

Biografie

I am an ecologist with a particular interest in birds. My project aims to gain insight in how bird populations are affected by emerging pathogens. I combine detailed studies on avian immune functions, behaviours and movements of wild birds, with integrative modelling approaches to quantify and understand pathogen transmission in the wild. Data obtained through bird counts, bird ringing, and surveillances for emerging arboviruses in wild birds will all be used to model eco-epidemiological dynamics.

  • One Health PACT - Predicting Arboviruses Climate Tipping points

    Project 2020–2025
    Our water-dominated landscape, combined with a dense human- and livestock population make the Netherlands particularly vulnerable to outbreaks of zoonotic viral diseases that are transmitted by mosquitoes among avian and mammalian host species.
