Research in the lab focuses on host-parasite ecology and evolution. Current work focuses on how parasites switch between host species, what factors affect the ability of parasites to successfully host shift and how these may be important for the emergence of novel pathogens. Other interests include the evolution and ecology of vertically transmitted parasites and how they spread through new host species or populations. We use insects and their natural viruses to examine these questions.

For more information please have a look at the research page, recent publications or email if you have any questions.
