The Evolutionary Ecology of Infection, Immunity and Behaviour

We're based at the Institute of Evolutionary Biology and affiliated with the Wellcome Trust-funded Centre for Immunity, Infection and Evolution at the University of Edinburgh.

We are broadly interested the evolutionary ecology of host-pathogen interactions. 

Our approach is mainly experimental, using host-pathogen model systems like Drosophila and its bacterial and viral pathogens to understand the causes and consequences of individual variation in health and disease.
