Arthur Menezes

Arthur brings profound expertise on experimental evolution of hosts and parasites — he is therefore at once a patient soul and a motivated scientist! We’re looking forward to his next project, as it develops, and suspect that he may also choose to hone his theory skills while in graduate school.

Alec Downie

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.

Liana Wait

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 (those clever raccoons), and is co-advised by Andy Dobson.
