BIOLOGY, PUBLIC HEALTH, AND CULTURAL HERITAGE

I am an independent researcher interested in infectious disease. My training is in biology (MS) and biosecurity and disaster preparedness (MS). I am currently finishing a degree (MS) in Cultural Heritage with interests in Digital Heritage, Public History, and Free-Choice Learning.

I’m interested in the animal-human network of zoonotic infections in a landscape context in the past; what I have called the historic landscape of diseases. It could also be called landscape epidemiology or the One Health approach. My current focus is on keeping up with plague developments, digital heritage, and museology. I blog about my research at Contagions and you can find me on twitter @MZiegler3

  1. Hi,

    I’m a 6th grade History teacher in Brooklyn looking for data on medieval Y. pestis (or other) plagues. I’d like to collect a selection of data sets from the medieval period. I mean “data sets” fairly loosely — maybe “lists” or “sources” is a better word.

    Anyway, if you can offer any advice here, I would be most appreciative!
