I am a Reserach Fellow in One Health at the Communicable Diseases Policy Research Group, LSHTM. I am an infectious disease veterinarian and epidemiologist. 

My main research interest/area is:

(1) generation and implementation of evidence related to public health, One Health and animal health
(2) understanding how diseases impact human behaviours and perceptions and feedback loop
(3) strategies to improving conservations of natural environment and local livelihood, especially smallholders in South-East Asia countries.

For these research, I use:

(A) statistical modelling of data from questionnaires and 'big data'
(B) mathematical modelling of infectious diseases, especially agent-based modelling accounting for complex animal production cycles
(C) qualitative interviews and qualitative data analysis.

Prior to joining LSHTM, I was a postdoctoral fellow at Massey University, New Zealand, where I also completed my PhD. I also hold DVM from Hokkaido University (Japan) and an MSc Veterinary Epidemiology from LSHTM and Royal Veterinary College.

Previous and current research topics include:

(a) Modelling of disease transmisisons including SARS-CoV-2, Zoonotic Influenza, African Swine Fever, Zoonotic tuberculosis, Bovine Mycoplasma
(b) A mixed-method approach to understanding livestock farmers' behaviours in relation to disease
(c) Antimicrobial resistance among food products
(d) Tick-borne disease
