Research area :How animal diseases impact on poor people and how people's knowledge, attitudes and behavior in relation to infectious animal disease affects disease epidemiology
Erika is further interested in how disease surveillance and control can be designed to be sustainable and attractive to apply for small holder farmers. In her PhD project she explored this aspects of veterinary medicine, bordering with epidemiology, disease ecology and veterinary anthropology, using African swine fever in Uganda as an example.
