Education

B.S. Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of Colorado at Boulder, 2014

Research

I study how the interaction of multiple pathogens in a host (coinfection) alters the host's mortality, morbidity, pathogen load, and immune response. I use amphibians as a host and pathogens known to cause amphibian decline worldwide, including the chytrid fungus, ranavirus, parasitic nematodes, and trematodes.
