The Birds and the Bees: The industrialization of agriculture and its impact on diseases in poultry and apiculture - 

Meeting our global population's food needs has involved intensive mechanization and centralization of food production. While this industrialization has allowed farmers to provide food for a burgeoning population, it has fundamentally changed the life cycles of domesticated animals in ways that create new and unknown threats to global food security. In my research I build mathematical models aimed at answering the question: how do modern agricultural management practices impact infectious disease burden, the risk of disease outbreaks and pathogen evolution? In this talk I will focus on recent changes to the poultry and the honeybee industries.
