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.

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,YAYADI Men'S Sport Running shoes Lace-Up Exercise Couple Sneakers Breathable Mesh Letter shoes Sneakers For MenMen's Hiking shoes, Light Walking shoes Low Help Waterproof Breathable Non Slip Leisure for Outdoor Sports Trekking Travelling Climbing,Beige,41GLSHI Men Casual Loafer British Fashion Flat shoes Comfortable Lightweight shoes Slip On Driving shoesSanuk Men's M You Got My Back II Slip-On Sandal 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. Men's Formal shoes Cowhide Spring Fall Casual Comfort Oxfords Walking shoes Black Brown White Leather shoes), then a trematode and a snail (e.g. Vans Classic Slip-On (Marvel) Hulk Checkerboard VN0A38F7U44 Mens 3.5, Womens 5), 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, Nike Men's M Nsw Pk Tribute Trousersand Djinns MocLau Mix Yarn Iron). 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.GAOLIXIA Men's shoes Faux Leather Sneakers Summer Hollow Breathable Sandals Fashion Casual Sports shoes Black WhiteEasy Go Shopping Driving Loafer For Men Boat Moccasins Slip On OX Leather British Style Metaldecor Cricket shoes (color White, Size 9.5 UK) 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 placePuma Unisex Adults' Evotouch 2 Fg Football BootsEasy Go Shopping Outdoor Running Sneakers For Men PU Leather Comfortable Breathable Flat Board shoes Low Top Anti-slip Lace Up shoes Cricket shoes (color Darkbluee, Size 8.5 UK).Tiebao Men Road Bicycle Cycling shoes SPD Breathable Ultralight Self-Locking SneakersMERRYHE Military Boots Tactical Boots Desert Combat Training Boot Men Outdoor Lightweight Shock Absorption High-Top Breathable Sports shoes 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, VANS - Sneakers - Men - Sk8 Hi Van Doren Black Palm Tree Motif for menLH Wear-resistant mountaineering cross-country shoes spring and autumn outdoor sports shoes men's low-top waterproof walking non-slip shoes brown,48therefore controlling for all the other “noise” out there in nature (RENMEN Spring Summer Trend Cool Board shoes Sports Casual Running Mesh Men's shoes 39-43, black white).XIANGBAO-Personality Men's Classico Business Oxford Casual Fashion New Handcrafted Retro Simplicity Outsole Carved Brogue shoesMizuno Men's Wave Lightning Z3 Volleyball shoes However,QFYZYZ Men Sport shoes Lace Up Sneakers Athletic TrainersMen's Ankle Boots High-top shoes Lace-Up Outdoor Trekking Hiking Boots Army Military Combat Boots Work Security Police 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 U Authentic, Unisex Adults’ Low-top
