Postdoc Jerry Nutor

Jerry is an expert on the complex determinants of maternal and child health in resource-limited settings. He is also a registered nurse. He thus brings both scientific and clinical perspectives to bear upon public health projects on mother-to-child HIV transmission, access to clean water, and breastfeeding. Jerry is especially interested in causes of the varied […]

RA Courtney Thomason

Courtney is a co-infection specialist who led fieldwork to assess resilience of hosts to viral infections. Her interests include the ecology of within-host interactions among parasites and the epidemiological consequences of anthelmintic treatments.

Grad Ed Schrom

Ed is a mathematical biologist and experimentalist who investigates the ecology and evolution of inducible defenses in the face of sabotage by parasites. He is particularly interested in the design principles of immune systems. Ed was co-advised by Simon Levin. He is now a postdoctoral fellow at the NIAID of the NIH.

Postdoc Micaela Martinez

Micaela is an infectious disease ecologist with strong interests in seasonality and other biological rhythms, digital epidemiology, transgenerational immunity, and vaccine modes of action.  She held an NSF Fellowship at Princeton 2015-17 and then joined the faculty of Columbia University. She and her work were featured in Science magazine in spring 2020 in an exploration of whether […]

Postdoc Sarah Budischak

Sarah is a physiological ecologist who doesn’t mind doing the often dirty work of studying helminth infection in hosts ranging from tadpoles to buffalo to mice. She brings together ideas from immunology, parasitology, and community ecology to better understand how hosts, multiple parasites, and nutrition interact to influence host health and disease dynamics. She has just moved on to […]

Grad Jennifer Peterson

Jenni brings research experience in genetics and molecular biology as well as dramatic flair to bear upon problems in parasite transmission. One of her favorite systems to think about is transmission of Chagas disease (American trypanosomiasis) by triatomine vectors. She completed her Ph.D. jointly with our group and Andy Dobson’s in 2015.

Grad Ann Thomas Tate

Ann is that rare blend of theoretician and empiricist, and she cares equally about the mechanistic basis and population consequences of immunological variations. She is applying her skills and cross-scale vision to understand how flour beetles fight infection. She completed her Ph.D. in 2014 and is now on the faculty at Vanderbilt University.

RA Tina Hansen

Tina was our Senior Research Specialist 2011-2018. She brought loads of experience in molecular biology, immunology, and cell biology to bear upon a variety of Graham Group research projects. She left the group to become EEB’s research administrator-in-chief.

Grad Jackie Leung

Jackie applies top-notch immunoparasitological skills to important problems in the within-host ecology of parasites and commensals. She has now moved on to a postdoctoral position at Columbia University.

Postdoc Carrie Cizauskas

Carrie is a veterinarian as well as a card-carrying, PhD-carrying field ecoimmunologist, helminthologist and anthraxologist. When she was based at Princeton (2013-2015), she applied these considerable talents to understanding parasite burden and immune function in wild baboons.
