Nicole Mideo is an Associate Professor in the Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology at the University of Toronto in Canada. By developing mathematical models and integrating them with empirical data, her work investigates why some parasites cause severe disease while others are comparatively benign, what has shaped the evolution of parasite traits that underlie disease severity and transmission, and how these traits might change in the future.
