Personal profile

Research

I'm interested in ecological and evolutionary questions related to host-parasite interaction, both from the host and the pathogens points of view. . Topics ranges from understanding ecological and evolutionary causes and consequences of genetic variation in parasite population. I want to understand how observed genetic variation relates to species limits, how variation is maintained and distributed throughout populations or selected for within single infections. I further studying gene-gene interactions between different hosts, parasites and vectors at different timepoints during infection cycles. We work primarily with natural host-parasite systems, with focus on avian malaria, using a variety of methods ranging from single gene barcoding to genomics and dual-RNA sequencing.
