Research interests

My research focuses on the ecology and evolutionary genetics of pathogens. Questions of current interest include:

  • Can we make evolution-proof drugs, vaccines and insecticides?
  • Will vaccination and chemotherapy prompt the evolution of more virulent pathogens?
  • Can entomopathogenic fungi be used to produce a cheap organic pesticide for sustainable malaria control?
