Paul Cross, Ph.D.

My research focuses on applied wildlife disease, conservation and management issues around the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.

Research Interests

I try to integrate multiple different scientific fields, but my specific background is in field ecology, behavior and mathematical modeling. There are two central themes in my research: (1) the integration of empirical data and mathematical modeling, and (2) the effects of host behavior on disease dynamics. Currently, my research focuses on brucellosis, chronic wasting disease, canine distemper and sarcoptic mange.
