My research focuses on two overlapping dimensions of coupled human-natural environment systems: 1.Ecology and management of medically important mosquitoes, and 2. Socio-ecological determinants of watershed health.
I address questions that are relevant to a range of disciplines, including population and community ecology, global change biology, watershed management, integrated pest management, and public health. My interdisciplinary approach is grounded within the emerging discipline of Ecology and Health (or EcoHealth). I collaborate with numerous researchers, extension professionals, and community partners on projects funded by state and federal grants, including those from NSF, USDA-NIFA, EPA-STAR, and NOAA.
