Maud Lélu

Project Title: Mathematical modeling of the evolution of complex life cycles with application to Toxoplasma gondii
Maude Lélu (Ph.D. Ecology, University of Reims Champagne-Ardennes, 2010) developed a general framework to study the evolution of trophically transmitted parasites and more specifically focused on the genetic diversity and virulence of Toxoplasma gondii. Upon completing her fellowship at NIMBioS, Dr. Lélu accepted a postdoctoral position working on the eco-epidemiology of zoonotic pathogens in the division of Epidemiology and Community Health at the School of Public Health, University of Minnesota.
