Nichar Gregory


Nichar is interested in the ecological drivers of vector-borne disease transmission, particularly in understanding how variation in vector life-history shapes transmission dynamics. She holds a PhD from Imperial College London, for which she quantified the impacts of tropical forest conversion in Malaysian Borneo on Aedes albopictus mosquito biology and vectorial capacity. Her research integrates entomological fieldwork, laboratory experiments and mathematical models to develop mechanistic frameworks for predicting vector-borne disease risk in rapidly changing landscapes. Currently, she is working with the Eco-Epidemiology Lab to study the dynamics of Coupled Natural and Human systems (CNHs) in tick- and mosquito-borne diseases in the Northeastern United States.
