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.
