Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Virus
  • Ecology
  • Statistics

Dirk Berkvens mainly focuses on Veterinary medicine, Seroprevalence, Serology, Virology and Epidemiology. His Veterinary medicine study incorporates themes from Prevalence, Cysticercosis, Taenia solium and Confidence interval. His Seroprevalence study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Feline leukemia virus, CATS, Livestock, Herd and Genotype.

His work deals with themes such as Brucellosis, Antigen and Brucellaceae, which intersect with Serology. His Virology research includes elements of Genetic variation and Cryptosporidium. The Epidemiology study combines topics in areas such as Helminths, Taenia, Sero epidemiology, Leishmania and Serum samples.

His most cited work include:

  • Bluetongue epidemiology in the European Union. (310 citations)
  • A Bayesian approach for estimating values for prevalence and diagnostic test characteristics of porcine cysticercosis (223 citations)
  • Sero-epidemiological study of Taenia saginata cysticercosis in Belgian cattle. (148 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary scientific interests are in Veterinary medicine, Virology, Epidemiology, Seroprevalence and Serology. His Veterinary medicine study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Prevalence, Incidence and Theileria parva. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Antibody and Immunology.

The various areas that Dirk Berkvens examines in his Epidemiology study include Outbreak, Foot-and-mouth disease and Environmental health. Dirk Berkvens interconnects Taenia solium, Public health and Food chain in the investigation of issues within Environmental health. His Serology study combines topics in areas such as Brucellosis and Confidence interval.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Veterinary medicine (37.26%)
  • Virology (12.93%)
  • Epidemiology (9.89%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Veterinary medicine (37.26%)
  • Microbiology (7.60%)
  • Serology (9.13%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His primary areas of investigation include Veterinary medicine, Microbiology, Serology, Livestock and Seroprevalence. His research in Veterinary medicine intersects with topics in Parasitology, Prevalence, Incidence, Credible interval and Gold standard. His Microbiology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Scalding, Contamination, Pig farms and Broiler.

His study looks at the intersection of Serology and topics like Brucellosis with Mortality rate. His studies deal with areas such as Odds ratio, Transmission, Herd, Risk factor and Hygiene as well as Seroprevalence. His research in Cysticercosis tackles topics such as Praziquantel which are related to areas like Virology and Taenia solium.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Epidemiology of Trypanosoma evansi and Trypanosoma vivax in domestic animals from selected districts of Tigray and Afar regions, Northern Ethiopia (41 citations)
  • Contamination of freshly slaughtered pig carcasses with enteropathogenic Yersinia spp.: Distribution, quantification and identification of risk factors. (31 citations)
  • Identification of risk factors for Campylobacter contamination levels on broiler carcasses during the slaughter process. (27 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Virus
  • Ecology
  • Statistics

His primary areas of study are Veterinary medicine, Seroprevalence, Livestock, Microbiology and Serology. His Veterinary medicine study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Human decontamination, Dry season and Parasitology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Odds ratio, Brucellosis, Rift Valley fever, Transmission and Risk factor in addition to Seroprevalence.

His Livestock research incorporates elements of Incidence, Brucella, Trypanosoma vivax, Herd and Breed. His Microbiology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Contamination and Yersinia pseudotuberculosis. His research in Serology focuses on subjects like High prevalence, which are connected to Pathology.
