We study how the host adaptive immune response coevolves with pathogens, especially in ways relevant to epidemiological and evolutionary forecasting, vaccine design, and pathogen diversity. Our work is computational, and we collaborate closely with immunologists and epidemiologists.
Our lab needs to grow grow! We are searching for several postdocs or senior research scientists and a software engineer/developer. More here.
