I have spent my career exploring the ecology and evolution of parasitic worms. Parasites often alter the behavior of intermediate hosts in ways that enhance transmission of the parasite, and folks in my laboratory and I have studied aspects of this phenomenon in a wide range of hosts, from cockroaches to crustaceans, pillbugs to dung beetles, and beyond. I have recently embarked upon transitional retirement and am not accepting graduate students. That said, I am happy to discuss parasite-induced behavioral changes and animal behavior in general with interested folks!
