About the lab
Broadly, we are interested in the interactions between individual-level and population-level processes, and how those interactions shape ecological and evolutionary dynamics. A major current emphasis in the lab is on understanding resource-mediated feedbacks between within-host and between-host processes in disease systems. We are also interested in understanding how organism's life history and behavior is shaped by the interaction between individual resource acquisition and allocation and population-level processes like consumer-resource and predator-prey dynamics. We use an array of approaches for this work, including life history and population experiments, development of theory, phylogenetic comparative analysis, and molecular techniques.
