Assistant Professor

Research Interests:

I research several questions at the intersection of two fields: disease ecology and conservation biology. I explore how win-win solutions can be used to advance conservation goals while reducing human infectious disease burdens; how we can control or mediate the impacts of parasites and pathogens on sensitive wildlife species; and how we can conserve the thousands of parasite species that might be threatened with extinction due to global change. This work is often highly collaborative, involving other members of the Sustainable Health Ecology Lab (SHEL) and multiple interdisciplinary working groups. Together, we use a variety of methods, including field sampling, laboratory studies, mathematical modeling, and synthesis science, to design and evaluate conservation and health solutions.
