The lab is part of the Center for Infectious Disease Dynamics , the Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences and the departments of Entomology and Biology at Penn State. Much of the research driving the lab is at the intersection of disease & behavior: how and why do parasites manipulate host behavior and what is the role of behavior in reducing disease transmission?

We are committed to engaging with the public through open-access publications and media, using our work to enhance ant biocontrol and global food security, and through educational outreach to learners of all ages.
