Erin Mordecai's research focuses on the ecology of infectious disease. She is interested in how climate, species interactions, and global change drive infectious disease dynamics in humans and natural ecosystems. This research combines mathematical modeling and empirical work. Erin finished her PhD in 2012 at the University of California Santa Barbara in Ecology, Evolution, and Marine Biology then completed a 2-year NSF postdoctoral research fellowship in the Intersection of Biology and Mathematical and Physical Sciences and Engineering at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and North Carolina State University.
