How mutualisms are initiated and what keeps them from breaking down?
Host-pathogen co-evolution, antibiotic resistance and classical predator prey dynamics
via evolutionary game theory and theoretical ecology, a trove of mathematical tools.
Focusing on the knowledge transfer between EGT and Population Genetics!
Research in our group spans levels of organisation - from subcellular entities to societies. We are interested in elucidating the associations and interactions that power the emergent complexity at multiple scales. Our focus is on eco-evolutionary processes within and between the valuable but amorphous organisation of hierarchies of organisation. We utilise the toolbox of theoretical biology while simultaneously developing it further. With "Insight preceding application" (Max Planck), we then eventually deploy our knowledge into action via translational programmes.
