C. Brandon Ogbunu

Assistant Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology


The Ogbunu Lab studies the forces that influence and craft disease across scales, from the population level(“large”) to the molecular level (“small”).

At each scale, we ask questions that are simultaneously relevant for the study of disease (and potential treatment and prevention regimen), and for theoretical questions in evolutionary biology, ecology, and information theory. In this sense, we aim to establish a bi-directional relationship between theory and disease: theory allows us to ask important questions about disease, and disease systems provide great models for asking basic questions about how systems (biological, informational, and artificial) evolve and change.
