Research interests

Pathogens don’t live in a vacuum; they interact with their hosts, complex communities of other pathogens within their hosts, and with the environment. My research aims to identify the best disease management strategies to employ across these varying contexts using both statistical and theoretical approaches. I am also interested in most areas in ecology, but I particularly enjoy confronting models with large datasets because the knowledge gained and consequent impacts can be so high.
