Peach, Dan

Dan Peach

Dan Peach

Assistant Professor
Infectious Diseases

Dr Peach’s research interests are in the field of vector ecology, with a focus on behavioral and sensory ecology. He is primarily focused on how arthropod vectors, such as mosquitoes, find and interact with resources such as the hosts they bite, the flowers they nectar-feed from (and pollinate) or the breeding sites they use, and the implications of this information for mosquito management and pathogen transmission as well as understanding species and disease distributions..
