Interests: Bacteria, Evolutionary Genomics, Genetics / Genomics, Host-Pathogen Interaction


Research in my group is focused on the evolutionary genomics of insect-pathogen interactions, emphasizing such questions as how natural selection operates on host immune systems, why individuals vary in susceptibility or resistance to infection, and what dictates whether opportunistic pathogens succeed or fail at establishing infection.
