Abstract

Sometimes challenges confront our society in ways that call upon all of the expertise we have to both make sense of the phenomenon and to take the necessary actions. The virus that causes COVID-19 is one such challenge. Rob Dunn, Ph.D. sets the stage for our 5-week exploration.

Rob Dunn is an ecologist and evolutionary biologist in the Department of Applied Ecology at North Carolina State University. He studies the biology of daily life, whether that be the beneficial microbes on skin and how they defend us against pathogens, the biology of sourdough bread starters or the ways in which changing climate will shift the species to which we are exposed in our homes, offices and cities. He is the author of six books, most recently Never Home Alone, the story of the many thousands of species in our homes and their consequences.
