Biography

Dr. Martínez López research is focused on the development and application of epidemiological tools for better understanding the evolution of infectious diseases and supporting a more cost-effective and risk-based disease surveillance and control. She has been primarily working on epidemiological modeling and risk assessment for the evaluation of the potential introduction and/or spread of emerging and exotic diseases, such as Foot-and-Mouth Disease, African Swine Fever, Classical Swine Fever, Avian Influenza, Rift Valley Fever, Bluetongue, etc. Many of those diseases are considered to be emerging or re-emerging due to globalization, climate and land use changes. Currently she is also actively working in PRRS, PED and other diseases at the wildlife-domestic interface such as bovine tuberculosis and those affecting aquatic animals, mainly those related with shrimp and salmon farming industry. Since 2013, she has assumed the direction of CADMS to participate in the continuing development of new near-real time surveillance and modeling tools, including Big Data analytics and their integration into operational platforms such as the Disease BioPortal™, a secure web-based platform system intended for real time routing, sharing, and analyzing infectious diseases data and information (http://bioportal.ucdavis.edu/). She currently mentors more than 12 PhD students and post-doctoral scholars and teaches and coordinates numerous training courses and technology transfer activities related with quantitative epidemiology, risk assessment and modeling.
