My current area of research focuses on the urban ecology of mosquitoes, particularly those of medical and veterinary importance.  I am interested in neighborhood predictors of adult mosquito distribution and abundance such as housing conditions, socioeconomic status, proximity to urban centers, and population density.  I also have a strong background in parasitology, specifically the ecological drivers of transmission dynamics and parasite-induced behavioral alterations of hosts. My most recent research pairs these interests: I will be evaluating potential socioeconomic determinates of heartworm prevalence in dogs and their mosquito vectors.
