Profile

I am fascinated by biodiversity and the forces that structure it. A large proportion of species are parasitic, and a strong focus of my research is on host-parasite interactions. Key topics concern antagonistic coevolution, the factors that influence host specificity, and the assembly of ecological communities. For this, I examine a wide range of systems from across taxonomic diversity, including arthropods, helminth worms, viruses, and transposable elements.
