Nelson G. Hairston Collegiate Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology
- Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science
- Biological Sciences Scholar, University of Michigan
Research in my lab is focused on the dynamics of ecological, epidemiological, and evolutionary systems. We develop and use sophisticated, model-based methods to understand biological systems, analyze data, and make predictions. Our research foci include:
- the dynamics of host-pathogen systems including COVID-19, influenza, dengue, pertussis, cholera, measles, malaria, and trematodes,
- the dynamics of parasite infections within individual hosts,
- methods for assimilating genomic and epidemiologic data with models of pathogen transmission,
- the transmission and evolution of antibiotic-resistant bacterial infections in hospitals, and
- statistical inference methods for ecological, epidemiological, and immunological systems.
