I am a newly appointed faculty research scientist at the University of Georgia, joint with the Department of Entomology in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and the Center for the Ecology of Infectious Diseases in the Odum School of Ecology. My work over the last decade of graduate and postdoctoral research has mostly focused on the ecology and evolution of parasites and their hosts, with particular application to managed honey bees. My newly founded lab focuses on the evolved defenses of insects to their pathogens and parasites, evolutionary answers to pest and parasite control, and the adaptation of viruses to changes in the transmission ecology such as opportunistic vectoring or host population spatial structure changes; all of these topics centre on managed honey bees and their associated species as applied model systems for answering fundamental EEID questions and simultaneous application of ecological and evolutionary theory in agricultural problem solving.
