Current graduate students and their research​

Kris McIntire

Ph.D. Student.  Coevolution of pathogen host interactions of mosquitoes and protozoan parasites.
PC160184 Geoff O.JPG
Geoff Ower
​Ph.D. Student.  Mosquito ecological responses to mortality, including nonlethal effects of predation and overcompensation; Individual based modeling
Kate Evans M.S. Student.  Field tests for density dependence acting on container dwelling mosquitoes, and the likelihood of overcompensation

Nate Dahlberg
​Visiting graduate student, pursuing research on effects of plant chemicals on larval mosquito growth and development.

Savannah Leutz
Visiting graduate student, effects of disturbance and enemy threat on survival of pupal mosquitoes.
Logan Sauers
Completed a MS and continuing as a PhD student inin Ben Sadd's Lab. Logan moonlights in my lab, conducting a side project on the nature of density dependent effects on survival and population growth in mosquitoes. 
IACUC take note:  The seal does not work in my lab.
