Research interest

Our overarching mission is to better understand the ecology and evolution of parasites and parasitism, and to use them to enhance general ecological, evolutionary, and behavioral science. We use observations and experiments from the field, lab, computer, and scratch paper. We aim to always operate within a conceptual—if not quantitative & predictive—theoretical context, and work to keep things grounded in reality.
