I am a veterinary epidemiologist with a diverse background. I spent my first 18 years in Upstate NY, but since then have lived in western Massachusetts, Leipzig, Beijing, Berlin, Osnabrück, Boston, Fort Collins, and now the Twin Cities. I’ve studied the humanities with a focus on foreign languages; I’ve worked in the social sciences on issues of European immigration and integration and China-US relations; I’ve interned for the U.S. State Department in Germany; I’ve worked as a high-tech strategy consultant for a boutique consulting firm; I’ve waitressed and bartended in multiple countries; and most recently I’ve completed a DVM-PhD degree with a focus in livestock production medicine and epidemiology.

My current research focuses on integrating diverse methods to better understand complex, multi-faceted issues at the intersection of agriculture and public health. One such issue is antimicrobial resistance. My overall goal is to use scientific discovery as a vehicle to help solve challenging problems in a win-win-win manner, for the benefit of animals, people and the environment.
