Research interests
Dr Joerg Henning is an Associate Professor in Veterinary Epidemiology at the School of Veterinary Science at the University of Queensland. He has over 15 years of research experience in epidemiology and biostatistics with a focus on international animal health. He was the main operational scientist in research projects in Myanmar, Vietnam and Indonesia. He also worked as a consultant for international organisations such as the FAO, World Bank, ILRI and others.

A key focus of Dr Joerg Henning’s research is to identify sustainable and acceptable interventions to improve the livelihoods of small-scale farmers in developing countries. His research interests included zoonotic diseases such as Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza H5N1, infectious diseases and management of poultry, attitudes and behaviours of small-scale farmers, extension programs to improve livestock health, the translation of research outcomes while considering farmer’s attitudes, behaviours, cultural background and literacy and research linking livestock production to human nutrition.

Dr Henning's research interest also includes the analysis of wildlife data, including anthropogenic threats to koalas, the development of citizen science approaches to support koala conservation and investigations into snake envenomation in domestic animals.
