Postdoctoral Fellow – Biosecurity & Public Health
Andrew Bartlow is a Director's Funded Postdoctoral Fellow in Biosecurity & Public Health at Los Alamos National Laboratory. He is interested in several topics in ecology and evolution, including infectious disease ecology, community ecology, host-parasite interactions, seed dispersal, and oak ecology. He is particularly interested in how environmental change and ecological disruption influence disease dynamics in populations, communities, and ecosystems. For his postdoctoral research project, Andrew is developing a platform of statistical tools to analyze biological community data to identify signatures of environmental change. He has extensive experience studying wildlife, including birds and mammals, and their parasites. He has done fieldwork throughout Utah and Nevada, the Galapagos Islands, Costa Rica, and the Philippines. He is also passionate about teaching, student mentoring, and public outreach to promote scientific literacy. Andrew is part of the Los Alamos genomics team in the project.
