Many important pathogens have a remarkable capacity to undergo rapid evolution. We use mathematical, computational and experimental approaches to investigate the evolutionary dynamics of infectious diseases both at the level of the individual infected host and the host population. Our interests range from basic evolutionary research such as evolution of recombination and fitness landscapes to applied topics such as the evolution of drug resistance.
