Teaching Responsibilities: Disease Ecology
Research Interests: Belsare is interested in disease systems that have conservation or public health implications, specifically emerging and novel pathogens e.g., chronic wasting disease (CWD) in cervids, amphibian chytridiomycosis; zoonoses e.g., West Nile virus, baylisascariasis (raccoon roundworms), leptospirosis, rabies; and pathogen spillover at the human-domestic-wildlife interface e.g.,  Kyasanur Forest Disease, SARS-CoV-2, bighorn sheep pneumonia, canine distemper. His approach combines ecologic, epidemiologic, and model-based investigations to understand how pathogens spread through, persist in, and impact host populations.
