Research interests

I am investigating mechanisms that cause heterogeneities in transmission. These heterogeneities appear to result in key hosts that:

  • Harbor a majority of parasites
  • Account for a majority of transmission

My research focuses on identifying differences between individuals that create key hosts, including:

  • Exposure due to behavior
  • Exposure due to body size
  • Susceptibility due to immune function
I am interested in the applications of network theory to empirical host-parasite systems as a novel methods for quantifying heterogeneities in

exposure to parasites

I've started my post-doc at CSU!  http://rydberg.biology.colostate.edu/ctwebb/News.html
