Graduate study at the University of Georgia
I advise graduate students studying for the PhD through the doctoral programs in integrative conservation and ecology, and the program in Interdisciplinary Disease Ecology Across Scales (IDEAS). All of these programs are housed in the Odum School of Ecology.
Summer Institutes in Statistics and Modeling of Infectious Diseases
I regularly teach a module (with co-instructor, Pej Rohani) in the Summer Institutes in the Statistics and Modeling of Infectious Diseases (SISMID) at the University of Washington. Details about our module on mathematical models of disease dynamics are online here. Information about SISMID, including instructions for applying, is available here.
Population Biology of Infectious Diseases REU Site
The Population Biology of Infectious Diseases REU Site is a nine-week, NSF-funded, experiential learning program I started in 2013 at the University of Georgia to train undergraduates in scientific methods at the intersections of quantitative and experimental studies in infectious disease biology. This program specifically targets students from underrepresented minorities, but any student is invited […]
Interdisciplinary Disease Ecology Across Scales
IDEAS is a new approach to training doctoral students in the interdisciplinary sciences of infectious disease biology. Started by myself, Dr. Vanessa Ezenwa (ecology and veterinary medicine), and Dr. Duncan Krause (microbiology), and housed by the Odum School of Ecology at the University of Georgia, it aims to provide students with deep knowledge about the […]
