My work looks mostly at the evolutionary ecology of host-parasite interactions across a variety of model systems. My main project at the moment is investigating parasite virulence and transmission evolution in response to competition or facilitation with other parasites. This is being done in spider mites (Tetranychus spp. and plant viruses). Recent work has also investigated sex allocation evolution and sexual conflict in the spider mite T. urticae.
