I am a Parasitologist, specializing in host/parasite ecology as well as the epidemiology of parasitic diseases transmitted from introduced to native species. I am also interested in the histopathology that occurs during infection. My current research encompasses host parasitic models ranging from the protozoans of invertebrates to the Helminth communities within birds and mammals.
