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.
Anna, Emily, and Emma graduated this spring – congratulations!!! You will be missed, but we’re excited for the big next steps you’re taking!
