Profile-Mackenzie Tietjen

I am co-advised in both the Medina lab (Entomology) and the Lyme lab (Veterinary Pathobiology Department). I am interested in vector-borne diseases and how genetics and ecology affect transmission cycles. I am conducting research on the population genetics, behavior, and ecology of the blacklegged tick (Ixodes scapularis), the vector of Lyme disease.
