Research Interests

Andria Jones-Bitton loves the variety that her training in veterinary medicine and epidemiology provides. Her current research focus (and passion) is in the epidemiology of mental health in veterinarians, veterinary students, and agricultural producers.  She also continues her love of research on food-borne, waterborne and zoonotic disease, disease surveillance, and small ruminants.  She previously conducted research on foodborne disease in the Arctic, and feral dog population control in Guatemala, although is sticking closer to home these days.  She is a firm believer in the application of mixed methods in epidemiological research, using a combination of both quantitative and qualitative techniques to improve research outcomes.
