The focuses of my research activities have been in areas of diagnostic pathology and infectious disease agents in poultry, livestock and companion animals that threatens food security and public health.

My research also focuses on avian virology and the clinic-pathological implications of host-pathogen interaction on mainly avian respiratory and reproductive systems.
