Chilton Parasitology Laboratory

Summary of Research Interests

My research examines fundamental questions and applied problems relating to the systematics, population genetics, ecology, and evolution of parasites (e.g. ticks & helminths). Studies are also being conducted in my laboratory on tick-borne bacteria (pathogens and endosymbionts).
