Who we are

Our team is composed of four primary faculty collaborators here at ODU. Some of our faculty members hold concurrent faculty positions at other universities, allowing broad, open collaboration on problems of global importance. We work with researchers and government partners in the state of Virginia, in different states across the US, and internationally.

On the ODU Tick Team, we value the contribution of our graduate and undergraduate students who spend long days in the field and in the lab. Our students comprise a major, vital part of our team. Students support the work of the lab while working independently on individual projects, and this gives them the chance to become experts on their own topics. You can meet students from the ODU Tick Team at the many outreach events where we set up information booths each year.
