Matt is a second year PhD student interested in understanding the relationships between parasite evolution and density of host species. He is especially interested in parasites of the North American raccoon Procyon lotor.

He is investigating the severity of the raccoon roundworm (Baylisascaris procyonis) problem in Southwest Ohio, and the effects of the parasite on P. lotor. He is investigating the coevolution between the two species, using phylogenetics, population genetics and behavioral ecology.
