My lab works on the biology of infectious disease, especially on co-evolutionary studies of host-pathogen interactions using a pollinator transmitted fungal pathogen (anther-smut) as a model system. Our current research focuses on the evolution of transmission mode, the evolution of age-specific resistance, and on modeling vector behavior in relation to disease transmission.  Though I am not taking graduate students currently, I do serve on their thesis committees.
