Food Safety, Public & Animal Health

  • Biology/management of arthropods affecting animal and human health housefly
  • Role of insects in the ecology of antibiotic resistance in public health
  • Role of insects in transmission of food-borne pathogens, a concern in food production, processing and handling
  • Post-harvest pest control in light of FQPA/food security
  • Systematics databases and rapid and sensitive detection methods for high-risk arthropod pests
  • Biology/management of vectors of plant, animal, and human diseases
