I am particularly passionate about building theoretical models and applying them empirically to understand the evolution and structuring of population diversities in time and space.
James Leslie Myers-Hansen
My interest is generally in infectious disease research. I am particularly interested in the use of molecular and genomic tools for the spatial and temporal tracking of malaria parasites and vectors in order to gain insight into transmission changes.
I study genomics and allergenic properties of house dust mites, and the many fascinating ways they interact with the environment, humans, and other organisms.
My research interests are currently centered around modeling the evolution and spread of drug resistance in populations of malaria parasites, but I have also worked on insect and bird ecology and evolution projects in the past.
I am interested in applying population genetics and statistical approaches to disease ecology, to explore how the evolutionary processes and pathogen diversity could affect disease control and prevention.
