Michel teaches Global Public Health Entomology each fall and spring. The course provides an overview of the ways in which arthropods impact public health and well-being, either directly or through the diseases they transmit. It aims to provide a broad perspective and will cover arthropods of both local, as well as global importance. A historical perspective is integrated into the course, and the impact of globalization, poverty and human actions on disease transmission by arthropods will be discussed.
Michel also co-teaches (with Giri Athrey) EEBL605 Population and Quantitative Genetics, a spring semester introductory module course for 1st year graduate student in our Ecology and Evolutionary Biology degree program.
Our lab also provides opportunities for motivated undergraduate students to conduct independent research projects. Undergraduate students in my lab work on their own independent projects, but are closely supervised by a Post-Doc or PhD Student. If you are interested in conducting a research project, please send me an email.
