Professional Activities

The main focus of my research is on tick ecology. In the past few years I have examined the distribution of the deer tick and lone star tick throughout Delaware.  These ticks carry a number of diseases – notably Lyme, HGA, Babesiosis, HME and STARI. My ultimate goal is to develop a risk map for each of these illnesses within the state.
