Dr Tony Goldberg is an infectious diseases epidemiologist, who is working globally on pathogen dynamics within a range of ecosystems, hosts, landscapes, and timeframes. His work focuses on the ecology, epidemiology and evolution of infectious disease. He uses a diverse set of mixed methods including fieldwork, laboratory analyses, and quantitative and qualitative inference to build a global picture of transmission dynamics, pathogen evolution and emergence, and social determinants of infection persistence. His work is truly One Health focused, as he strives to conserve the rapidly changing ecosystems shared by humans and other animals and ensure their continued health. Join us at 3:30pm on Friday 10 July to hear about Tony’s adventures in pathogen investigation around the world, and how even the most compromising situations, such as removing a tick from one’s nostril, can result in the discovery of a new species.

This talk is part of the Cambridge Infectious Diseases series.
