Prof David Hayman PhD, MSc, BVMS

Group Leader - Academic

School of Veterinary Science

I use multidisciplinary approaches (including molecular, serological, quantitative and phylogenetic techniques) to address how infectious diseases are maintained within their hosts and how the process of emergence occurs. More generally, I am interested in how ecological degradation and anthropogenic changes lead to increased pathogen emergence in humans and animals and how multi-disciplinary research can work to improve human and ecological health.

I am a Royal Society Te Apārangi Rutherford Discovery Fellow, particularly interested in developing research programmes that improve public health and wildlife conservation outcomes, which often means working at the interface between disciplines.
