I am now assistant professor in the Division of Biology at Kansas State University. KSU


Research Interests

My research interests are directed primarily toward the role of the innate immune system in the insect vector during host-parasite interactions in a variety of interrelated areas:
  • Regulation of humoral innate immune responses in the insect vector by serine protease inhibitors
  • The role of immune responsive organs, especially the insect blood cells (hemocytes), in the recognition, modulation and initiation of effector systems
  • The interplay of immune responsive organs (midgut, fat body, and hemocytes) and the potential role of cytokines in this interplay

Other areas of interest include:
  • Hematopoiesis in insects
  • Evolution of immunity genes

Education

2002 PhD in Entomology, University of California Riverside, CA, USA
1995 MSc in Biology, Christian-Albrechts-University, Kiel, Germany
