My research focuses on investigating the patterns of gene flow in pathogen populations. I am particularly interested in phylogenetic methods of sequence analysis that combine genetic, spatial and ecological information.

Specific questions involve:

  • uncovering the spatiotemporal dynamics of human and animal pathogens
  • identifying factors underlying pathogen spread and dynamics at different scales (e.g. geographic regions, body compartments)
  • investigating the drivers of cross-species transmission and host shifts
