Professor of Evolution & Infectious Disease
My research aims to explain the evolutionary dynamics of pathogens, particularly viral infections of humans, including HIV/AIDS, the hepatitis C virus, and Influenza. I hope to understand how evolutionary and ecological processes - which occur on the same timescale for many pathogens - combine and interact in natural populations.
