Research Interests

I am interested in the epidemiology and ecology of diseases carried by blood-sucking arthropods. My research focuses upon the prevention of Lyme disease and other human infections caused by ticks. I am very interested in how individuals can protect themselves from disease, either through personal actions or by manipulating the environment.
