Alison Höger

Alison grew up in the United States where she developed a fascination with rabies, as well as the political and social impacts of infectious diseases. In a quest for warmth, she headed to the tropics where she obtained a Master of Public Health at James Cook University and later completed Honours research in Darwin investigating Burkholderia pseudomallei carriage in wildlife and livestock. Her doctoral research focused on Australian Bat Lyssavirus surveillance which included a placement at Biosecurity Queensland.

Alison joined Ausvet in August 2022 as a Project Officer and contributes to a wide array of Ausvet projects, ranging from business development to data collection and field work.

Outside of work and study she volunteers with wildlife rescue and rehabilitation in Brisbane.
