I am a PhD student interested in Host-Parasite interactions.

In the lab, we use rodent malaria as a model to answer questions that will help us understand the evolution of different parasites strategies.

I explore rhythms during early stages of infection, and how circadian rhythms in lymphoid organs shape infection dynamics.
