My research interests are broad, but have recently been dominated by questions in population ecology, and the ecology and evolution of infectious diseases. My research integrates techniques from the fields of dynamical systems, probability, stochastic processes and statistics to develop and analyze mathematical models to address those questions. I also pursue interesting mathematical questions that emerge from these applications.
