Dr Maxwell Farrell
- Research Associate (Virology)
I am an NSERC Postdoctoral Fellow working with Daniel Streicker at the University of Glasgow and Nicole Mideo at the University of Toronto.
My research focuses on the ecology and evolution of host-parasite interactions, and developing knowledge and tools support the surveillance of parasites that infect multiple species. I am interested identifying the forces that shape both host and parasite biodiversity, how variation in host-specificity influences the ecology of infectious diseases, and generating methods to predict and track undocumented host-parasite interactions. I tackle these questions using data-driven approaches from macroecology, computational statistics, text mining, and biodiversity genomics.
At the University of Glasgow I am working with Daniel Streicker on a meta-analysis of experimental viral infections.
