Overview

I am interested in understanding the environmental, evolutionary, and ecological factors which influence the emergence of new diseases. Within this topic, I am hoping to explore both the factors which contribute to the ability of pathogens to infect novel host species, and also the factors which allow these pathogens to establish long-term, stable transmission within their new hosts.

Project Title:

“Evolution and ecology of virus host shifts”

Supervisors:

Ben Longdon, Lena Wilfert, Joanne Lello (Cardiff University)

Funding Body:

NERC GW4+ DTP

Project Description:

My PhD project will use a range of different Drosophila species to investigate the factors which influence the ability of viruses to infect novel host species. Initially, the project will focus on how co-infection with multiple viruses alters infection dynamics, and will examine how this varies across a phylogenetically diverse group of host species.
