Fields of study
Theoretical ecology and disease ecology
I received my Ph.D degree in 1995 from the Joint Program of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. I was awarded a U.S. Department of Energy Alexander Hollaender Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowship for studies at Princeton, and more recently, a Centennial Fellowship in Global and Complex Systems from the James S. McDonnell Foundation. I am currently affiliated with the Center for the Study of Complex Systems at U-M and with the Santa Fe Institute as an external faculty.

New irrigation systems in arid regions benefit farmers but can increase the local malaria risk for more than a decade, a new study in northwest India led by EEB graduate student Andres Baeza, concludes.
Sea surface temperatures in the tropical South Atlantic Ocean can be used to accurately forecast malaria epidemics thousands of miles away in northwestern India, a U-M theoretical ecologist has found.
The University of Michigan hosted the 10th Annual Workshop and Conference on Ecology and Evolution of Infectious Disease in May 2012.
