Host-parasite-poison interactions in toxic and toxin feeding rodents
Research on toxin feeding North American woodrats (Neotoma spp.) and toxin sequestering African crested rat (Lophiomys imhausi) to examine how animal behavior, parasite infection, and the microbiome influence toxin tolerance and metabolism.
Infection dynamics in a changing world
Research in North America and East Africa toexamine how factors such as invasive species, large mammal loss and climate change impact parasite communities
