Sarah Cobey

Sarah is an associate professor in the Department of Ecology & Evolution at the University of Chicago.

Phil Arevalo

Phil is building models that integrate epidemiological and molecular data to infer how infection history, vaccination, and influenza epitope diversity influence protection against influenza infection.

Kangchon Kim

Kangchon is a postdoc at Cobey lab. She received her PhD in Evolutionary genetics from Ewha Womans University, Seoul, Korea and studied computer science for BS at the same university. She is interested in population genetics of viruses and antibodies and host-pathogen coevolution.

Ed Baskerville
Senior Research

Ed is a researcher in the Cobey Lab currently investigating how influenza exposure history relates to immunity. He received his PhD in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology and Scientific Computing from the University of Michigan in 2013.

Marcos Vieira

Marcos moved to the University of Chicago for his PhD studies after completing his Master's in Ecology & Evolution (Universidade Federal de Goiás) and his BS (Universidade Federal do Ceará) in Biology in Brazil. He's currently interested in the coevolutionary dynamics of pathogens and antibody repertoires, and his background interests include ecological networks and a bit of evolutionary behavioral ecology.
