Dr. Graham Hickling's Research Program
Dr. Hickling's research focusses on applied projects investigating the spatial dynamics of a range
diseases - with a view to improved management of the impacts of these diseases on
valued wild species. Simulation modelling and bioeconomic analyses are
often a component
of these studies.
Current projects include:
- Invasion of Lyme Disease in the American Midwest.
- Efficacy of '4-poster' acaracide stations to reduce ticks and tick-borne disease in Tennessee
-Wildlife reservoirs of bovine tuberculosis in Michigan and New Zealand.
- Assessing the risk of large-scale rodenticide applications to valued wildlife in Mongolia.
- Modelling disease risks associated with the Sterile Male Lamprey Release Program in the Great Lakes.
