The Innovative Vector Solutions Lab develops novel arthropod vector trapping and control devices to collect and repel mosquitoes of medical importance (vectors of diseases such as Dengue, Chikungunya, Zika and Malaria).Sheba Goklani works in Kaushal Rege's lab

The lab is currently recruiting undergraduate students to join our engineering lab to develop novel technologies to reduce the worldwide mosquito-borne disease burden. There is the option to do a Barrett honors thesis.

Motivated students with a background in mechanical engineering and/or with expertise or experience or knowledge in one of the following are welcome to apply:

– Designing circuits and micro-controller programming
– 3D CAD modeling and design
– Physics

Lab members would contribute to one of the following projects:

– Rotating mosquito traps, collecting mosquitoes at programmable times
– Repellency technology using electric fields, preventing mosquitoes from flying through windows
– Insect flight mills, measuring mosquito flight speed and distance and more
