Research Interests: I am a community ecologist interested in ecological interactions. My work has focused on understanding the ecological and evolutionary factors that impact parasite host ranges. I have focused my work on milkweed butterflies and their protozoan parasite Ophryocystis elektroscirrha (OE), and I have used butterfly museum collections to understand OE host range expansion.
