I study the evolutionary ecology of host-parasite interactions using Borrelia in wild rodents as study system. My project currently focuses on three topics:

  • Evolution of Borrelia virulence: How does natural selection act on virulence (the harm that a parasite causes its host)? What factors favour high or low virulence?
  • Genetics and evolution of host defence: What is the genetic basis of variation in resistance to Borrelia, and how is genetic variation for resistance maintained?
  • Population genetics of Borrelia: At what scale is there geographic structuring of Borrelia? What are the causes and consequences of such structuring?
