about me



I'm a graduate student (PhD) in Dr. John Drake's lab at University of Georgia. My interests are likely too broad for my own good, but include topics scattered throughout population, community and disease ecology. I aim to couple experimental microcosms with mathematical models to gain a better understanding of how species interactions influence pathogen dynamics.
