I am interested in the ecology, behavior, and conservation of vertebrates. My research focuses on parasite-induced alterations in host behavior, disease transmission, and host physiological/immunological responses to parasites. I use a combination of molecular, physiological, and ecological laboratory experiments along with field research to examine host-parasite interactions in individuals and within/between populations.
January 2017: Collaborative work with the Rohr Lab on thermal mismatch and amphibian susceptibility to Bd is published in Ecology Letters (and we got the cover also!).
October 2016: Our CORT x Bd paper coauthored by Julie Murone ('16, Bio) and Joe DeMarchi ('16, Bio) has been published. Check it out!
