Brief Bio

I work on new methods for surveillance and control of insects of medical importance, specifically the ‘chirimacha’ (Triatoma infestans) a vector of Chagas disease, in Peru and bed bugs in Philly. I also work on providing a scientific support for housing policies aimed at stemming SARS-CoV-2 transmission (such as eviction moratoria).
