HI! I am a veterinary microbiologist and currently serve as a Scientific Officer at the Animal Health Research Laboratories, National Agricultural Research Centre, Islamabad. Pakistan. I am exploring the role of bats in maintaining ecosystems and their potential for pathogen spillover. Bats have been identified as natural reservoir hosts for several emerging viruses that can cause severe diseases in humans. Despite being often misunderstood, bats are crucial to our environment and economy. They play a vital role in pest control, pollination, and seed dispersal. However, due to human activities, bat populations have been declining worldwide, resulting in the loss of their habitats. Therefore, I aim to become a bat ambassador by raising awareness about the importance of preserving natural bat habitats and maintaining a balanced ecosystem to prevent any potential pathogen spillover.
