Our research combines theoretical models with laboratory or field observations and experiments to understand the factors affecting the dynamics of animal populations. We are interested in how stage-specific processes, life-history traits and behaviors of individuals translate into effects on dynamics at the population level. Our lab is working on in a number of projects involving either disease-host or parasitoid-host interactions, all in natural systems in California.
