The future of sustainable human health and agriculture rests on our ability to view microbial evolution as part of the solution rather than the problem.

We focus primarily on how plant-microbiome, plant-pathogen, and bacteria-phage interactions occur, both as model systems for understanding fundamental principles and with the aim of leveraging these findings for design of novel disease management strategies.

A brief introduction to the lab and our recent research:

I am an evolutionary ecologist interested in how species interactions influence genetic diversity within populations, diversity between populations, and species diversity at the community level. By combining evolutionary theory on coevolution, population dynamics, and infection genetics,Reebok Phase 1 PRO MU - Footwear Men's Footwear Men's Lifestyle shoesNunn Bush Men Moccasin Toe Oxford Lace Up with KORE Comfort Walking Technology, Bone, 10Men's Leather Sandals Men's Casual shoes Travel SandalsMens Walking Sandals Leather Open Toe Outdoor Sports Beach Sandal for Hiking Trekking Traveling, Ankle Strap,Brown,40 I directly test the underlying assumptions and predicted outcomes of host-pathogen and microbial interactions through the lens of human health and agricultural sustainability.

My previous work was primarily focused on host – parasite coevolution; first between a smut fungus and a plant (e.g. Hitz Mens Formal shoes Pine 3308), then a trematode and a snail (e.g. Serfas Men's Paceline 3-Strap Road Cycling shoes - SMR-401W), and most recently between bacteriophage viruses and the bacteria they infect, which are themselves parasites of plants (e.g. if phages are locally adapted to bacteria, MOZOEYU Men's Mesh Athletic shoes - Perfect for Cycling, Mountain Climbing & Casual Walkingand PY Men's Chocorua Trail Mid Waterproof Hiking Boot). The types of fundamental questions I’ve address are:

1) How do pathogens/parasites adapt to better infect their hosts? And at what scale / speed are they capable of adapting?

2) How do hosts respond to this adaptation (i.e. coevolve) and become more resistant to their local pathogens/parasites?

3) Can antagonistic coevolution lead to increased diversity? For example, do pathogens/parasites preferentially target common hosts (i.e. the hosts that are the most fit) and therefore impose a rare-host advantage?

and 4) Does this coevolution among hosts and parasites matter to human health, agriculture, and conservation? Can we use our understanding about when and how pathogens and commensals evolve to design better treatments and to predict and prevent the spread of diseases?

So far, the body of evidence produced by the scientific community over decades of work suggests that parasites can evolve rapidly and specifically to infect their hosts, but that this doesn’t always mean they get more harmful or even better at infecting.Williess Leather Casual shoes Men's Toe Leather shoes Lazy shoes (color Khaki, Size 43)shoes for Men or Women hyx Comfortable and Breathable Non-Slip Set Feet Outdoor Hiking Sneakers Formal shoes for Men, shoes Size 40 (color Brown) There is also clear evidence that hosts respond by evolving increased resistance, and that this often comes at a cost such as decreased growth or reproduction. This ongoing coevolution, in which neither parasite nor host is winning the battle has been called ‘Red Queen’ dynamics, based on the idea from “Alice Through the Looking Glass” that you have to run as fast as you can just to stay in the same placeMen's Hiking shoes Sandals Outdoor Sport Casual Anti-Skid Beach shoes Cross Country shoes for Trekking Walking Mesh Breathable Sneaker Water shoesCHENXD shoes, Men's Fashion Genuine Leather Driving Loafers Strap Decor Slip-on Leisure Penny Moccasins Soft Rubber Sole.HWUED Fashion,Stylish Sweet Candy and Cola Canvas shoes Low Top Print Lace-up Classic Sneaker for Men WomenIno Monk Strap Oxfords for Men Brogue Carving Low Block Heel Microfiber Amphetamine Punctured At last these ideas are beginning to be incorporated into the design and use of drug treatments (sometimes referred to as Darwinian Medicine) and used to build predictive models of disease spread in our increasingly-connected world. My work has taken advantage of a very powerful approach to address these questions by experimentally evolving hosts and parasites in the laboratory, Men's Plus Velvet Boots, Men's Leather Martin Boots Men's Casual shoesMen 's Home Slippers Indoor Keep Warm Leisure Artificial Leather Slippers Black Soild color Bedroom Mediumtherefore controlling for all the other “noise” out there in nature (JaHGDU Men's Cotton Slippers Faux Leather Keep Warm in Autumn and Winter Home Casual Slip Thick Soled Slippers for Men Brown).IGI&CO 3132722 Sneakers shoes Man Made of Memory Foam Leather Made in Adidas Predator Tango 18.1 shoes Men's Soccer 9 Black-White-Red However,CHENXD shoes, Men's Fashion Lace up Pointed Toe Business Oxfords Casual Low Top Leisure shoesCHENXD shoes, Men's Fashion Personality Oxford Casual Comfortable Rivet Slip On Patent Leather Formal shoes I always try to go back to nature’s microcosm to find out whether what holds true in the lab can be used to explain what we see in the real world.Vans Mens Chukka Low Pewter White Gum
