Allison Neal studies parasites, especially how they interact with each other and their hosts. She earned her B.A. and Ph.D. in biology from the University of Vermont. 

Neal’s research on the evolution and ecology of parasites currently focuses trematodes in Vermont, though she also works with lizard malaria parasites in California (this was the focus of her Ph.D. work). This research combines fieldwork, microscopy, and population genetics. Neal and her students collect snails and catch lizards, examine amazing parasites with a microscope, and analyze the genetics of parasites and their hosts.

Neal teaches a variety of classes at Norwich, including parasitology, ecology, evolution, genetics, microbiology, and introductory biology. She also co-directs the Vermont Science Fair and loves getting students of all ages involved in science.
