About Dr. Foy

I work with vectors and vector-borne pathogens and try to span my research across both basic and applied biology. I like to think this reflects my diverse interests and training: my undergrad training at Notre Dame was in medical entomology, anthropology and ecology and my graduate school training at Tulane was in molecular and cellular biology, immunology and tropical medicine research. My current interests lie in defining concepts that govern blood meal acquisition and digestion by vectors, and parasite and arbovirus transmission from vertebrates to vectors and vice versa. I’m very keen on using this knowledge, combined with the epidemiological concepts that define vector-borne diseases, to practically control their transmission.
