Charlotte Knopp

Charlotte brings expertise in the ecology and evolution of parasites, especially tick-borne parasites, as well as a profound love of social insects. As an undergraduate, she gained a lot of research experience in each area, and she is now planning to bring those concepts together in her graduate research program. We look forward to her graduate adventures studying parasite life cycles in their six-legged hosts!
