Research Interests

Our lab studies the evolution and genetics of hosts and parasites, mostly  using insects as a model system. Which genes cause variation in  susceptibility to infection and why is this variation maintained in  populations? How does natural selection shape parasite and host genomes?  What determines whether mosquitoes can transmit human disease? Our research  is addressing these questions using the tools of genomics and evolutionary  genetics.

Details of our research and publications are on our lab website.
