Overview


My research spans the fields of disease ecology and migration biology, drawing on theories and techniques from physiological ecology, community ecology, and molecular biology. I investigate how parasites, pathogens, and symbionts are transmitted and maintained, what impact they have on animal performance, how environmental disturbance alters animal movements, and the ecological consequences of these changed movement patterns.

I have investigated these questions in a range of systems – from waterfowl and avian influenza viruses across Northern Europe and amphibians with trematode parasites in the western United States, to shorebirds of the East-Asian-Australasian Flyway, and their viruses, intestinal parasites, and gut microbiota. I am currently interested in extending these studies to better understand how external stressors, such as habitat modification and food shortages influence susceptibility to infection and movement behaviour.
