Congratulations Jack!

Jack Tajmajer, a high school junior at Amity Regional High School in Woodbridge, CT has been working with me for the last year. He just won 3rd place at the CT Science Fair (CT-STEM) on February 9th and 2nd place at the annual student talk competition (non-college division) of the CT Entomological Society last Friday March 8th. Jack’s project isĀ  entitled: “Inter-specific competition between two invasive mosquito species: Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus, over multiple generations”. He will be part of the lab for another year, and hopefully you will see his results published within this year. Keep the good work Jack!

At Entomology 2018

Excited to be at the meeting. I will be talking about our results trying to determine a good proxy to measure transmission of arboviruses by Aedes mosquitoes. Today Sunday at 2pm. Room 220.

New paper coming up today!

This is a good review on the recent history of Aedes aegypti, based on the results of our genetic analysis, our collaborators, as well as the historical epidemiological records available for diseases transmitted by this mosquito. Enjoy!
