Welcome! Here you’ll find out about our growing team and the work we do on the evolution and ecology of infectious diseases. We’re motivated by fundamental questions on the (co)evolution of species interactions, and we try to use the approaches that best suit the question at hand. That means we often end up synthesizing data from field observations, laboratory manipulations and experimental evolution, with guidance from theoretical models and (increasingly) genomic data. The lab is young and looking for new members, so, if you’re nice, hard-working and enthusiastic, we’d love to hear from you.
Caroline Amoroso was awarded an NRSA F32 Postdoctoral Fellowship from NIH! She’s already started on her super cool plan to work with the Gibson and Antonovics labs to study the evolution of parasite avoidance using both theoretical and empirical approaches with C. elegans. Congratulations Caroline – we’re all thrilled to get the chance to work … Continue reading Go Caroline! F32!
Akosua officially completed her undergraduate degree this semester. Congratulations! She’ll spend the next semester prepping for medical school and working at the UVA hospital. We’ll miss having you around, but look forward to hearing about your upcoming adventures!
We’d forgotten that the lab existed prior to the arrival of technician superstars Sarah and Juliana, but apparently it’d only been a year. Thanks for supporting science and smiles you two!
It’s official – a long-time member in spirit, Caroline officially joined the Gibson lab as a postdoc today! We’re pumped to continue the work we’re doing together!
