Greg is a professor in the Ecology & Evolution department at the University of Chicago. His research is focused on the ecology and evolution of infectious diseases, and especially on how mathematical models can help us understand disease dynamics.
Jiawei uses mathematical models to study the interaction between a fungal and a viral pathogen in Lymantria dispar caterpillars, and the role of climate change in their competition.
Katie combines transmission experiments in the field with mathematical modeling to test how host tree species effects transmission for different virus species in Douglas-fir tussock moth caterpillars.
Will is broadly interested in how the dynamics of host dispersal and spatial population structure influence the dissemination and competition of pathogen communities.
Sophia uses mathematical models and field data to understand disease dynamics in the broader frame of management and climate change. Her research focuses on competition and coexistence between a fungal and viral pathogen in the Lymantria dispar moth.
