About me

As a researcher, I have participated in scientific research projects in veterinary medicine. My area of interest is research on the pathogenic process of bacteria and viruses in livestock and the development of vaccines against infectious diseases in animals. I am also interested in clinical diagnosis, disease treatment, and surgical surgery for animals.
