Susan Kutz is a professor in UCalgary's Faculty of Veterinary Medicine and director of the Alberta Regional Centre of the Canadian Wildlife Health Centre. She is a parasitologist whose research examines disease burdens in caribou of northern Canada. Her specific focus is on how climate change is affecting disease and animal populations, and its social effects on indigenous peoples.
