Camille-Sophie Cozzarolo

The way symbiotic interactions shape the evolution of hosts and symbionts is my main subject of fascination. In particular, I am interested in coevolutionary processes in parasitic relationships and how these relationships intervene in different aspects of each actor’s ecology and behavior. I work with a wild population of great tits (Parus major), their avian malaria parasites (Plasmodium sp., Haemoproteus sp. and Leucocytozoon sp.) and their vector, the mosquito Culex pipiens. My research involves lab experiments (metabolic measurements, host-choice experiments, study of coinfection dynamics) and field studies, in the context of a long-term epidemiological monitoring of avian malaria in three wild populations of great tits, which allows us to conduct experiments in the wild as well as collecting different samples and data.
