West Nile Virus: The past, present and future under a changing climate
Sarah is a disease ecologist whose research addresses questions at the interface of ecology and public health. She is broadly interested in studying how interactions between humans, animals and the environment influence infectious disease risk. Much of her research has focused on how climate change could affect transmission of macro-parasites and vector-borne infections. Her current work in the West Nile virus system is focused on developing mechanistic understanding of the drivers of weather-disease linkages, and improving predictive models of how risk will shift in the future. Sara earned a PhD in Ecology from the University of Colorado, Boulder, and a B.A. in Ecology from Dartmouth College.
