My research program focuses on the biology of avian blood parasites. The work encompasses many aspects including molecular parasitology, ecology, evolution, and conservation genetics. We have ongoing research projects in Africa, California, and Central America and significant collaborations with the Center for Tropical Research at UCLA, the Institute of Ecology at Vilnius University, and the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory. There are projects amenable to both graduate and undergraduate research. I teach General Parasitology, Parasitology Lab and Emerging Infectious Diseases at San Francisco State University.
