Devin Drown, Ph.D.

Postdoc at Indiana University researching coevolutionary interactions, particularly host-parasite interactions

My research focuses on understanding coevolutionary interactions, particularly host-parasite interactions. I use a combination of mathematical modeling and molecular analysis in both field and laboratory settings to address how species interactions influence life history trait evolution, such as dispersal and virulence. Dispersal is a direct way in which a species can modify its own spatial genetic structure. The overall goal of my research is to develop a mechanistic understanding by which abiotic and biotic forces drive the direction and rate of evolution of coevolutionary interactions.
