I am broadly interested in symbiosis, from mutualism to parasitism, but especially like thinking about complex inter-species interactions that are difficult to place on that spectrum. I try to understand a biological system across different scales and resolutions by connecting genomic and evolutionary data to molecular mechanisms. Wolbachia has grabbed my attention due to the context-dependent nature of its interaction with insects, and the seemingly endless ways it affects insect biology.
