Andrea Graham, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Princeton University

Andrea Graham

Andrea L. Graham is an evolutionary ecologist whose research focuses on host-parasite interactions.  She particularly aims to understand heterogeneity among hosts in their susceptibility to infectious and inflammatory diseases, as well as heterogeneity among parasites in their strategies for host exploitation.  For example, Graham investigates how co-infection, host condition, and the costs and benefits of cytokine and antibody responses affect host health and parasite transmission.  Graham received a Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowship and a BBSRC David Phillips Fellowship while working at the University of Edinburgh, and she moved to Princeton full-time in 2011.  A.B., Mount Holyoke College; Ph.D., Cornell University.
