Mentoring Philosophy:

Pathogen evolution creates an extraordinary epidemiological record and staggering public health challenges. The Evo-Epi Lab develops and applies evolutionary approaches to answer open questions about pathogen transmission and epidemiological dynamics. We focus on tuberculosis and pathogens linked to the rapidly changing climate in the American West. Our ongoing goal is to collaborate closely with public health so that pathogen evolution can inform an equity-focused public health response.

We are committed to creating an inclusive, safe research community that invites and supports students from groups historically underrepresented in the sciences. We are committed to anti-racist, anti-imperialist, abolitionist research program and group culture.

We have many open opportunities for students interested in epidemiology, evolution, computational biology, and health justice. Please reach out to discuss your interests-we're looking forward to meeting you and learning with you!
