I’m starting a new research group this month housed in the Bioinformatics Research Center and the Department of Entomology and Plant Pathology at NC State. To start, the group will focus on tracking the spread of human and agricultural pathogens using a mix of phylogenetic methods and epidemiological modeling, which we call phylodynamics. In the future, we will be branching out to experimental work on how plant viruses adapt to new host environments and expand their host range. So please come back and visit our site again soon.
Also, if you are interested in doing a Ph.D. or postdoc in phylodynamics or experimental viral evolution, please get in contact. Some funding is available and Raleigh is a great place to be right now!
