I’m a professor in the Department of Biology at Norwich University. I teach a diverse set of exciting courses at Norwich including Ecology, Evolution, Parasitology, Invertebrate Zoology, Microbiology, Genetics and Introductory Biology.
I also have an active research program that focuses on the ecology and evolutionary biology of parasites. I received my PhD from the University of Vermont where I studied a species of malaria parasite that infects lizards, and I am continuing this research in collaboration with undergraduates at Norwich. This research includes extensive fieldwork in Northern California, microscopy and molecular genetics. I also hope to get a more local research program up and running soon. Two parasite-host systems that have sparked my interest locally are a gregarine parasite of earthworms and trematode parasites in snails. Check back periodically for updates on my developing research program!
