Personal Statement

I am an evolutionary geneticist with a broad interest in adaptation and ecology. The focus of my current research is the genetic basis of host-parasite interactions. In my studies I use trypanosomatid parasites and Drosophila as a model for understanding the important aspects of insect immunology and host-parasite co-evolution.
