Dr. Belal Hossain is an early-career researcher with an interest in ecology, epidemiology, and evolution of emerging infectious pathogens at human-animal-ecosystem interface. His current research focuses on how social, environmental, and etiological factors shape outbreaks of infectious disease of zoonotic origin. He aspires to contribute to understanding the transmission dynamics, impacts, and implications of infectious disease emergence aiming to design effective strategies to prevent outbreaks and contain disease spread. Much of his past and current research work focuses on bacterial and viral zoonoses including highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI), anthrax, rotavirus, tuberculosis, Q-fever, Nipah encephalitis, rabies, hepatitis, antimicrobial resistance problems, and transboundary animal diseases. Apart from scientific research, he also has an interest in wildlife, biodiversity, global affairs, poetry, music, and sports.
