I joined Christl Donnelly’s group at the MRC Centre for Outbreak Analysis and Modelling at the Imperial College of London studying the control of bovine tuberculosis (TB) in British cattle, a problem made considerably more complex by the transmission of M. bovis from badgers to cattle. I am currently trying to assess the long term effect of badger culling on spatial associations of Mycobacterium bovis infections in cattle in United Kingdom. I also reviewed in the literature the impacts of wildlife culling strategies on disease incidence. This postdoctoral experience gave me as well the opportunity to work on domestic dog and wild carnivore interactions and disease transmission in Tanzania.
