Johnson Lab @ USF

Welcome to the Johnson Lab

We seek to understand how individual behavior and local interactions between individuals influence population level patterns in the context of infectious disease ecology, population ecology, and behavioral ecology. Our primary tools are mathematical and statistical models. For more information on some previous and current projects, visit my research page.

I plan to accept 1 or 2 graduate students to start in the 2015/2016 academic year. If you are interested, take a look at my prospective student page.
