Research Interests: 

I am broadly interested in vector-borne disease ecology and evolution, especially for arthropod vectors and avian hosts. My research investigates how the interactions of diseases, vectors, hosts, and their environment drive evolution and adaptation, and when relevant, how this impacts human health. My background is in population genetics.
