Heather is interested in wildlife conservation and disease ecology as it pertains to the surveillance and management of infectious diseases with zoonotic potential. More specifically, she is keen on how behavior, land-use change, and environmental and climate variables influence the interactions between hosts and pathogens and drive disease transmission. She is studying how host behaviors influence environmental contamination and indirect transmission events of chronic wasting disease. She combines field sampling with biochemical and molecular biology techniques to evaluate the relative magnitude of chronic wasting disease prions in mechanical vectors and environmental reservoirs (i.e., soil) for indirect transmission.
