Lively Lab

Department of Biology, Indiana University, Bloomington, IN 47405, USA

Students in my lab group work on topics loosely organized around the evolution & ecology of interspecific interactions and/or the evolution of reproductive strategies, especially cross-fertilization. We are particularly interested in host-parasite coevolution and the evolution and ecology of parasite virulence.

I may have openings for one or two new graduate students beginning Fall 2014.
