Research and Professional Interests:

 I use mathematical models to explore how adaptation and species interactions drive patterns observed across communities. Much of my past work has focused on predator-prey, host-pathogen, and other exploiter-victim systems. I develop theory using a combination of analytical methods and numerical simulations, with much of my work being done in collaboration with empiricists.  Please see my lab page  for more information.
