Tiana Rey | Research assistant (casual)

I am a Tiana, a research assistant all the way from Honolulu, Hawai’i helping out with various Wolbachia experiments on A. aegypti.  Not only is this technology interesting for reduction of arbovirus transmission in humans, but it could also be beneficial to bird species that are in decline partly due to avian malaria, which has played a role in the extinction or endangerment of many native Hawaiian birds.
