New paper: How to make a haploid male
I am a Research Fellow in Mathematical Modelling at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. My research focus is on antibiotic resistance: its evolution and ecology, and how vaccination can be used to control it.
More generally, I am interested in how individuals adapt to their social and physical environment at all levels of biological organisation: genes within genomes, cells within bodies, and individuals within societies. In particular, I have focused on the origins of insect societies and on the evolution of intragenomic conflict.
