Dr Fernando Sanchez-Vizcaino Buendia

My research has focused on the application of qualitative and quantitative epidemiological methods for the prevention and control of transboundary zoonotic diseases such as Rift Valley fever, avian influenza and Newcastle disease, and re-emerging swine infectious diseases like African swine fever and classical swine fever in Spain and other European countries. It has also been orientated towards new methods of disease surveillance such as the development of a novel real-time syndromic surveillance system for the early detection of disease outbreaks in small animals using the Small Animal Veterinary Surveillance Network (SAVSNET). My current research interest lies in the development of a 'One Health Informatics' approach, linking animal, human and environmental electronic data together at scale to provide a new understanding of emerging antimicrobial resistance and other zoonotic infections, as well as new opportunities to mitigate their risk.
