We are interested in integrating field research with experimental and observational epidemiological studies on wildlife population health and their habitats.

Dr. Mateus-Pinilla research focuses on epidemiology, conservation, restoration and preservation of Natural Resources while encouraging a responsible response to societal needs concerning disease impacts to human, livestock and wildlife health.
