I am currently a postdoc in the Boots Lab at the University of California, Berkeley. My background is in biomathematics, I have a Ph.D. and M.Sc. in Applied Math, both from Queen’s University and a B.Sc. in Biology and Math from the University of Guelph. I specialize in epidemiological modelling and am broadly interested in the ecology and evolution of infectious diseases. In particular I am interested in how modern agricultural practices change disease ecology and subsequently select for virulence evolution.
