Welcome to the Barker Lab!

The Barker Lab at the 87th Annual Mosquito and Vector Control Association of California Conference, Feb 2019

Our laboratory uses quantitative methods to understand the epidemiology and ecology of mosquitoborne viruses. We rely on modeling as a framework to improve our understanding of transmission mechanisms and to guide field and laboratory research that explicitly acknowledges the complexities of both the natural processes and the surveillance “lens” through which they are observed to produce answers that are evidence-based and readily interpretable by policy-makers.
