Office: Erman 103:
In my research, I use a combination of mathematical modeling and transmission experiments in the field to study how host diet and climate play a role in patterns of pathogen variation at multiple scales in the Douglas-fir tussock moth-baculovirus system.
Advisor(s):
Greg Dwyer

Natasha Ershova

Office: Zoology 401A:
I am focused on the ecological role of parasites in marine communities, specifically the role of trematode parasites in intertidal snails.

Santiago Herrera

Office: GCIS 503W:
I am intrigued by the patterns of distribution of phenotypic variation in nature. I use genotype-phenotype maps to understand why a given molecular function evolved, and ask how accessible were different alternative outcomes during evolution.

Joe Thornton

Sophia Horigan

Office: Erman 103:
I use mathematical models and field data to understand disease dynamics in the broader frame of management and climate change. My research focuses on competition and coexistence between a fungal and viral pathogen in the gypsy moth.

William Koval

Office: Erman 103:
I study the Douglas-fir tussock moth and its associated nucleopolyhedroviruses as a model for pathogen coexistence. I’m particularly interested in how dispersal and stochastic processes alter scale-specific patterns.
