Jenni Peterson - The ecology of Chagas disease

I am a Post Doctoral Researcher in the Dobson Group in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Princeton University. I study the ecology of vector-borne diseases with a focus on Chagas disease.


Research Interests

My research is centered around the ecology of vector-borne diseases, and using ecological perspectives to find new solutions for disease prevention and control. I specialize in Chagas disease, and I do lab, field and theoretical work. For more infomation, click here For more information, click here.
