Current graduate students and their research​


Kate Evans

Kate Evans – PhD Student.  Field tests and individual based modeling of density dependence acting on container dwelling mosquitoes, and the likelihood of overcompensation


Jaclyn Everly

Jaclyn Everly – PhD student working on unintended effects of Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis used for mosquito control in ephemeral pools.


Logan Sauers

Logan Sauers – Completed a MS and continuing as a PhD student in 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.

Geoffry Kretzschmar – Visiting graduate student

Testing the effect of experimental reduction in larval density on adult longevity of Aedes albopictus.


Undergraduate research students and their research.

Hantle Garver – Field/Laboratory experiments to determine the likelihood of food limitation for larvae of container dwelling Aedes.

Mishella Volodarsky – Laboratory experiments on the effects of duckweed cover on predation by damselflies on larval Culex

Melanie Szasz – Assisting with experiments on overcompensation in Aedes mosquitoes; Investigating effects of hatching asynchrony on competition among larvae.

We may have an opening for an undergraduate research student in my lab. Contact me at sajulian@ilstu.edu for more information.
