My research interests center on the ecology and population genetics of malaria parasites and their vectors. Presently, I am working on projects utilizing a natural, non-human malaria parasite-host relationship: the lizard malaria parasite, Plasmodium mexicanum, its vertebrate host, the western fence lizard, Sceloporus occidentalis, and the insect vectors (sand flies- not mosquitoes) Lutzomyia vexator and L. stewarti. Research on this system has been ongoing since 1978, initiated by my Ph. D. advisor Dr. Jos. J. Schall at the University of Vermont. A brief list of my current research projects are: 1. The population genetics of the sand fly vectors for Plasmodium mexicanum and how this relates to the patchy distribution of malaria at our field sites in northern California. 2. The immune response of Sceloporus occidentalis to infection by Plasmodium mexicanum and Schellackia occidentalis: alterations in the density and classes of white blood cells in infected and noninfected lizards. 3. Transmission bottlenecks in Plasmodium mexicanum: the fate of individual clones from mixed-clone infections. 4. Blood meal size of Lutzomyia vexator and L. stewarti: vectors for the lizard malaria parasite, Plasmodium mexicanum.
