About Carla N Mavian
I obtained my bachelor and master in biotechnology from University of Padova, Italy. I obtained my PhD in the Centro de Biología Molecular Severo Ochoa hosted at the Autonomous University of Madrid, Spain, mentored by Dr. Antonio Alcami. My PhD focused on evolution and immunodynamics of poxviruses. I joined the University of Florida during my postdoctoral training mentored by Dr. Maureen Goodenow and Dr. Marco Salemi.
My research program supports cross-disciplinary approaches to the study of infectious diseases. My area of research is infectious diseases, with emphasis on molecular evolution and host-pathogen interactions. My research spans from large-scale epidemic processes, such as population growth and spatial epidemic dispersal, to small-scale transmission histories; and within-host evolution, including adaptation and recombination.
