     Public Health Entomology/Integrated Pest Management 




Research Interests

Presently, I am mostly engaged in Public Health Entomology with emphasis on integrated management of human disease vectors.  I direct the University of Kentucky's Public Health Entomology Laboratory and you can find out about our current projects there.  In general, though, most of our work involves researching mosquitoes in urban and suburban environments and evaluating/developing management techniques for them.  We work with state, county, and municipal health departments in a variety of ways in order to meet this goal.


Potential Students

If you are interested in exploring a possible graduate program in the rewarding field of Public Health Entomology, please drop us a line. 



Beginning in Fall 2009 I will begin teaching a course in Medical and Veterinary Entomology entitled Insects Affecting Human and Animal Health (ENT 561.  I currently teach Integrated Pest Management (ENT 530) and Advanced Applied Entomology (ENT 574).
