Students in my lab work on topics loosely organized around the evolution & ecology of interspecific interactions and the evolution of reproductive strategies, especially cross-fertilization. We are particularly interested in host-parasite coevolution and the evolution & ecology of virulence. Multiple systems, including natural populations of snails & trematodes, C. elegans & pathogenic bacteria, entomopathogenic nematodes & their bacterial mutualists, and simulations, are used in answering our research questions. We have lab meeting on Mondays, from 3:30-4:30 [schedule]. Check out New Zealand photos here!
