Evolutionary ecologist with background in both ecology and molecular biology, and a taste for statistics. I am interested in adaptive evolution, behaviour, and host-parasite interactions, and take a particular joy in designing experiments and developing empirical studies grounded in theory.

The response of interacting species to biotic seasonal cues

In temperate regions, food abundance and quality vary greatly throughout the year, and the ability of organisms to synchronise their phenology to these changes is a key determinant of their reproductive success. Successful synchronisation requires that cues are perceived prior to change, leaving time for physiological adjustments.
But what are the cues used to anticipate seasonal changes? Abiotic factors like temperature and photoperiod are known for their driving role in the phenology of a w...

Limited dispersal in a vector on territorial hosts

Parasitism requires parasites and hosts to meet and is therefore conditioned by their respective dispersal abilities. While dispersal has been studied in a number of wild vertebrates (including in relation to infection risk), we still have poor knowledge of the movements of their parasites. Yet we know that many parasites, and in particular vectors transmitting pathogens from host to host, possess the ability to move actively during at least part of their lives.
So... how far does a vector go...
