Dr. Emma N. I. Weeks
Assistant Research Scientist, Medical and Veterinary Entomology
Dr. Emma Weeks conducts applied research on medical and veterinary arthropod pests, including ticks, bed bugs, muscid flies and mosquitoes.
The goal of her program is to develop tools and techniques that can be implemented as part of an integrated pest management program for pests that impact animals. Dr. Weeks is particularly interested in the identification of semiochemicals for behavioral manipulation of pest species. For example, the identification of attractants for use in monitoring devices.
