Research area:

  • Ecology

We study interactions between species and their environment at population, community, and ecosystem levels.

Current projects in our lab focus on:

  • Community ecology of Disease
  • Food Web Stoichiometry


  • Development of mathematical models
  • Experimental tests of those in both the laboratory and the field
  • Surveys of natural systems

Research: Disease ecology; Food webs; Limnology; Mathematical modeling

Research Area:

  • Environmental Science

Research Interests:

  • ecology of infectious disease and food web interactions in freshwater environments
