Katrina joins the Department from the Nuffield Department of Medicine at the University of Oxford, and will continue her Sir Henry Dale Fellowship with us, which she started in 2015 here in the Department of Zoology. Katrina is also a member of Oxford University’s Big Data Institute, to which she will retain an affiliation after joining us.
Katrina’s interest is in the ecology and evolution of viral infections, such as HIV and SARS-Cov-2, and she is currently the Genetics Lead of ONS Covid Infection Survey. More specifically, she is interested in evolutionary and ecological processes operating at different ecological scales (e.g. within- and between-host), to assess the impact this integration of scales has on our understanding of the evolution and epidemiology of infectious disease.
