RESEARCH  My objective is to produce and test a predictive theory of evolution to rapid environmental change, including the evolution of exploitation and of resistance. My laboratory uses mathematical modeling, and experimental evolution with the systems surrounding Pseudomonas aeruginosa and their lytic phages. I am particularly interested in the following themes, and I welcome contacts from prospective PhD students and Postdoctoral reasearchers about working in my research team.

1. Specialization in complex evolutionary systems. We investigate how bipartite networks characteristically change during bacteriophage-bacteria coevolution. We are also currently investigating how evolutionary theory can be used to develop phage therapies and combination phage-antibiotic therapies against the nosocomial pathogen P. aeruginosa.

2. Evolution of exploitation, resistance and the dynamics of complexity in cancer. We are particularly interested in determinism in carcinogenesis, the evolution of cancer prevention, tolerance and resistance in the human population and in other animals. We are currently developing theory of novel approaches to preventing lung cancer and managing tumors at different stages of development.

4. The future of science and publishing. Based on my experience as Editor in Chief of Ecology Letters, I have collaborated on a number of opinion articles about credit for scientific contributions, the importance of promoting fundamental science, and the crucial role of peer review in maintaining and promoting scientific quality. Most recently, I have argued that the current general reliance on impact factors for job hires, careers, research funding, and choices on where to publish (the « impact factor syndrome »), will most likely require decision-makers (committees and journal editors) to slow or reverse this trend.
