Research Interests

Research in the Fidy Lab examines the multiple interactions between Human Health, Animal Health, and Environmental Health, also known as the One Health concept in order to inform policies to promote public health and biodiversity conservation.

​Our goal is to understand the dynamics and drivers of disease transmission between hosts and their impacts on health and populations while accounting for the many interacting factors, all within an environment that is warming, urbanizing, and becoming far more connected.

​For example, our lab studies how recent anthropogenic changes such as habitat degradation and the intensification of human mobility and animal trade are altering the landscape of infectious diseases and facilitating the spread of pathogens across geographical and ecological boundaries in Madagascar.
