Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn't matter to me. Going to bed at night saying we've done something wonderful, that's what matters to me. Steve Jobs

My work focuses on the links between ecosystem complexity and infectious diseases dynamics and evolution. I am developing a general framework to link, in time and space, theory of community ecology and infectious disease dynamics. My favourite biological models are avian influenza, West Nile virus and Mycobacterium ulcerans.
