Welcome to the Civitello Lab!

We are in the Department of Biology and the Population Biology, Ecology, and Evolution graduate program at Emory University.

Why do epidemics grow large in some places but not others? We build and test theory for disease outbreaks that can explain parasite transmission and reproduction in heterogeneous populations and dynamic environments. We combine field surveys, experiments, and mathematical modeling to improve predictions and control of disease outbreaks that are relevant for biodiversity conservation and human health.
