Research Interests

I’m generally interested in aquatic parasitology. My past research has focused on marine host-parasite interactions, parasite infracommunity structure, and descriptions of new parasite species through a combination of genetics and life cycle work. For my dissertation I am studying the use of parasites as indicators of ecosystem health and climate change.
