Assistant Professor Sarah Zohdy is interested in the ecological and evolutionary drivers of disease in human and wildlife communities. Most of her research takes place in Madagascar, along the Gulf coast of Alabama, where she is taking a One Health approach to evaluate how anthropogenic disturbance influences vector-borne disease dynamics that threaten human and wildlife health.
