2002), performing undergraduate research on river otter ecology, and subsequently worked as a young researcher in the entomology laboratory of the Instituto Nacional de Salud (National Institute of Health) on a project focused on evaluating impregnated bed nets as a control measure for leishmaniasis. She received her MS in biological sciences at Universidad de los Andes (2008), with thesis research on the ecology and control of biting midges (Ceratopogonidae). Mara Cristina is currently pursuing a PhD in entomology with Dr. Phil Lounibos as her advisor and Dr. Jorge Rey as her co-advisor at the Florida Medical Entomology Laboratory, University of Florida, studying reproductive interference between invasive mosquito vectors. Her graduate committee has guided an interdisciplinary approach that integrates ecology, physiology, and evolution. She wants to maintain an interdisciplinary perspective in her research with a career goal of research and teaching in Colombia, working in association with national and international researchers, students, health authorities, and local communities. Mara Cristina is very grateful to the Entomological Society of America and Monsanto; the Monsanto Research Grant Award will greatly enhance her current PhD research project.

CHANDRA MOFFAT is a PhD student at the University of New Brunswick, where she studies the process of host-associated differentiation. Specifically, she is interested in how herbivorous insects accept new host plant species into their diets, how new specialist insect species result from novel host use, and how host use differs as insects progress through evolutionary divergence. Chandra's interest in entomology began while at the University of Victoria (BS, 2008), where she participated in three cooperative education work terms with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, first researching behavioural responses of wireworms to IPM, and then investigating the effects of temperature perturbations on an experim
