Alyssa-Lois Gehman

Project Description

Alyssa is interested in the interactions between infected hosts and their communities, and the impact of temperature and ocean acidification on host-parasite interactions. For her postdoctoral research Alyssa is using the mussel-endolithic cyanobacteria system to evaluate the effects of multiple environmental stressors on host-parasite interactions over space and time using museum and private collections, field surveys and manipulative field experiments.
