Dr. LaDeau’s research broadly investigates the mechanisms by which spatial (e.g., land use) and temporal (e.g., weather) variability define population dynamics of pests and pathogens and associated disease risk in ecological communities. LaDeau received her Ph.D. in ecology at Duke University in 2005, where she investigated forest response to rising atmospheric carbon dioxide using free-air CO2 enrichment (FACE) plots. She completed a postdoctoral fellowship in Bioinformatics from the National Science Foundation in 2008, at The Ohio State University Program in Spatial Statistics and Environmental Sciences and the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center, where she worked on using data-model assimilation to investigate the impacts of West Nile virus emergence on avian communities across the continental United States.
