Ben Ashby
Ben is an Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Simon Fraser University.

  • I am a mathematical biologist interested in the ecology and evolution of hosts and parasites. I use mathematical models to study how parasites spread through populations and how traits such as infectivity and virulence evolve, and in turn how this affects the evolution of host traits such as resistance or mating strategies.
  • My research covers a broad range of topics in biology, including infectious diseases, the evolution and maintenance of diversity across space and time, sexual selection and reproductive strategies, and niche evolution.
