Theory, evolution, and infectious diseases

I am broadly interested in problems related to ecology and evolution of infectious diseases (eeid), eco-evolutionary dynamics, and theoretical ecology. I use mathematical models and experimental evolution to answer some of the questions in eeid.

“…if these models, despite their different assumptions, lead to similar results we have what we can call a robust theorem which is relatively free of the details of the model. Hence our truth is the intersection of independent lies.”
