Current interesting in
1. The micro-environment of dog/cat ear, especialy the antimicrobial
competitiion between the two pathogens, and the antimicrobial resistance
mechanisms of the two pathogens as well.
2. Goat and cattle mastitis, the antimicrobial resistances and the
prevalence of different pathogens. The patterns in space and time are also
focused on.
3. The intervention of rabies vaccine in Taiwan. Is any policy useful to
boost the rate of vaccinations? I try to find the factors influencing owners
behaviour and the government officers.
