Host-pathogen dynamics and evolution

About the Lab

Our aim is to advance theory in ecology and evolution by studying host-pathogen systems. We use mathematical and computational models to test hypotheses. Ultimately, we'd like to understand how the host adaptive immune response coevolves with pathogens, especially in ways relevant to vaccine design. See more.
