I have broad interests in ecological and evolutionary dynamics, particularly related to the health of human and animal populations, and to the maintenance of biodiversity.
I am particularly interested in (i) the ecology and evolution of infectious diseases, especially the impact of host population structure on pathogen spread and diversification and (ii) how collective behavior affects trophic interactions and ecosystem stability.
To address these questions I work with students and collaborators at the interface of mathematical models and empirical data. A list of publications can be found on my Google Scholar page.
