Biography

I am an NSERC Postdoctoral Fellow working with Daniel Streicker at the University of Glasgow and Nicole Mideo at the University of Toronto.

Research interests

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.
