... Previously, he was dean and Distinguished Professor of the School of Veterinary Medicine at UC Davis. His expertise is in virology, emerging and reemerging infectious diseases, the use of nonhuman primates in infectious-diseases research, and veterinary medicine; his interests also include public-health policy and comparative medicine.
From page 74...
... His most recent work has focused on incorporating social and behavioral factors into theories of infectious-disease dynamics and management, and on using mathematical models to predict the biological and ecological transmission process of disease. He served on the National Research Council committee to review the health and safety risks of high biocontainment laboratories at Fort Detrick.
From page 75...
... He remains involved part-time as the co-director of the Center for Animal Disease Modeling and Surveillance and co-director of the FMD Surveillance and Modeling Laboratory, where he continues to pursue his research interests in infectious disease epidemiology and surveillance, particularly related to foot-and-mouth disease. His interests during the last 38 years of professional teaching, research, and service have included clinical medicine and clinical epidemiology, primarily related to infectious diseases of livestock, new methods in diagnostic epidemiology, and modeling and development of disease control and surveillance systems.
