My Research Interests

 

The first priority...

How can understanding immunological variety (i.e., within & among individuals, populations, & species of animals) add to our understanding of animal ecology & life history evolution (& vice versa)?

  • Environment: seasonality, pollution, geography
  • Behavior: locomotion, life cycle stage, pace of life
  • Methods: animal models & new assays

 

An “aspirational” goal...

How can answers to the main question above help us to understand better the dynamics & consequences of infectious diseases in free-living animals?

 

My Latest News

 

  • We'll be offering REG-33306 Disease Ecology again during the first half of Period 6 of the 2018-2019 school year (13 May - 7 June). Join us!
  • Here's a recent story in the Resource about a publication resulting from an ongoing project involving WUR MSc thesis students (including one as co-author): ???Angst veroorzaakt babyboom bij woelmuizen.
  • Here's another story in the Resource about one of my "side activities": College geven in de gevangenis. I returned to this program again in the summer of 2018.

 

A Glimpse Into My Research

 

The word cloud below was generated from the article and journal titles of my publications, from my first ones as an MSc student (e.g., Nymphicus hollandicus) to my most recent ones (e.g., Africa).
