RESEARCH AT THE INTERFACE BETWEEN ECOLOGY AND PUBLIC HEALTH

WELCOME!

 

In the Prokopec Lab, we aim to understand the major determinants of the occurrence, transmission, and local propagation of major vector-borne and parasitic diseases. We study the biology and ecology of insect vectors, reservoir hosts, and the relationship between humans, vectors, and pathogen transmission. We are interested in applying this data derived from field, observational, and experimental studies and integrating it with spatially explicit statistical and mechanistic models of pathogen transmission. Our primary research involves disease ecology, spatial and landscape epidemiology, and global health. We are also actively engaged in inspiring the next generation of scientists at the undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral levels.
