evolutionary ecology of parasites group

Parasites are everywhere, and their antagonism can be severe and specific. Thus, host-parasite interactions provide a powerful framework to elucidate the drivers and consequences of rapid evolutionary change in nature.

Our research focuses on the ecological and genetic drivers and consequences of rapid host-parasite evolution.  This involves using experimental evolution, genomics, mathematical modelling, and collections from natural populations. Our projects explore the links between host-parasite interactions and big problems in evolutionary biology.....virulence, rapid evolution, sexual reproduction, genetic diversity, and community diversity.
