Professor, Entomology

Laura Harrington's research focuses on the biology, ecology, and behavior of mosquitoes that transmit human diseases. She became interested in global health issues and vector-borne diseases after living and working for several years in rural Thailand. She contracted both dengue and malaria while living abroad and realized the impact these infections have on children and adults in resource-poor nations.
