Epidemiology of Brucellosis in Ethiopia

Supervisor - Professor James Wood


I am a graduate of Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Addis Ababa University college of Veterinary Medicine in 2007. I did my Masters in Veterinary Immunology from Indian Veterinary Research Institute in 2011. I have been working as a full time instructor in Addis Ababa University College of Vet Medicine since 2007 offering courses for both undergraduate and few graduate classes in the area of Veterinary Immunology. In addition I have served the college as Head of the department of Microbiology, Immunology and Vet Public Health since September 2013. I have also worked as PI of sub thematic research entitled “Assessment of microbial quality of food of animal origin in central Ethiopia. Moreover, I am working as co-Pi of  a research project entitled as “ sequence based vaccine strain selection for serotype “O” and SAT-2 Foot-and-mouth disease virus circulating in Ethiopia: vaccine development and evaluation in cattle” .More over I have been main and co-supervisor for a number of DVM and graduate students of Veterinary Microbiology. As ZELS-AS student under supervision of Professor James Wood, currently I am pursuing PhD study on epidemiology of brucellosis in dairy cattle of greater Addis Ababa dairy shed in Ethiopia.
