Interests & Activities

My interests range widely in spatial, theoretical, mathematical, computational and statistical ecology, evolution and epidemiology.

Some particular foci include:

  • evolution of virulence in host-pathogen systems; interactions with epidemiological dynamics (e.g.: West Nile Virus)
  • plant dispersal: estimation of dispersal kernels, and modeling the effects of dispersal on competition
  • animal dispersal: estimating sea turtle migration rates from genetic markers
  • statistical methodology: development of generalized linear mixed models
  • epidemiology: finding simple but reliable methods for estimating parameters from epidemic curve
