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 in evolutionary biology, and we try to use the approaches and questions 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.  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.
