New paper out in Trends in Parasitology

I am delighted that our paper with Karthikeyan Chandrasegaran, Luis Escobar and Clément Vinauger is now available online! Abstract: Mosquitoes are considered to be the deadliest animals on Earth because the diseases they transmit claim at least a million human lives every year globally. Here, we discuss the scales at which the effects of ecological factors cascade to influence epidemiologically relevant behaviors of adult mosquitoes. In particular, we focused our review on the environmental conditions (coarse-scale variables) that shape the life-history traits of larvae and adult mosquitoes (fine-scale traits), and how these factors and their association, in turn, modulate adult behaviors to

Outreach: Kids' Tech

We are really excited to have had the opportunity to participate in the Kids' Tech University event last month! I gave a talk to 120 kids and told them all about how smart mosquitoes can be! Abstract: You probably know that blood-sucking mosquitoes can transmit several diseases to animals and humans. These insects are considered the deadliest animal on earth! Unfortunately, vaccines and treatments are not always available to treat some of these diseases and it is thus important to better understand how mosquitoes find their next host to develop new tools for controlling their populations and thus limit disease transmission. But… Did you know that mosquitoes can pollinate certain flowers? Did
