Andrea L. Graham
Andrea is the group’s head researcher. Her background is in ecology and evolutionary biology, and that training has shaped her approach to immunoparasitology. She has been known to occasionally have popcorn for dinner.
Stephen will soon be arriving to lead investigation of immune function in elephant seals. How awesome is that!?
Alec is fascinated by life history evolution. He brings phylogenetic and comparative perspectives to generate broad understanding of the diversity of life histories that plants and animals, hosts and parasites, exhibit.
Arthur brings an experimentalist’s view on disease ecology, but his interests in epidemiological theory are strong too.
Liana has a very exotic background in wildlife parasitology: for her Master’s degree, she studied parasites of none other than Tasmanian Devils! She is now investigating co-infection in other, equally charismatic wild animals (=raccoons), and is co-advised by Andy Dobson.
Ramya Smithaveni Barre
Ramya brings expertise in everything from root knot nematodes to influenza transmission to the Graham Group.
Billy has aided Graham Group field research projects on mice, snails, sheep, and more, and is hoping that the project portfolio will soon expand to include cryptids.
