Date:9/11/2013

h Experience for Undergraduates project in Millbrook, NY at the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies, an independent environmental research organization. Jeff completed a field-based study to assess the distribution of Ixodes scapularis nymphs in Dutchess County, NY. Subsequently, his senior thesis involved a survey of tick species and Borrelia burgdorferi (the bacterium that causes Lyme disease) in southern Kosciusko County, Indiana. Jeff has made numerous oral and poster presentations on his PhD research at national and regional meetings. He currently serves as a member of the scientific user advisory group to the NIH/NIAID-funded Influenza Research Database/Virus Pathogen Resource database. Since arriving at Purdue, Jeff has participated in numerous scientific outreach activities, most notably as a "Disease Detectives" presenter on the award-winning Purdue zipTrips Program, which is designed to provide middle school students with a virtual field trip to Purdue University.

The following entomology students are winners of the 2013 Monsanto Student Travel Awards:

ZACHARY DEVRIES was born in Columbus, Ohio, but raised in Auburn, Alabama. As an undergraduate at Auburn University, Zach jumped right in to field work, exploring his interests in biology. Zach worked for Dr. Rusty Wright, assisting teams collecting fish throughout Alabama, particularly the Mobile Delta. During his undergraduate career, Zach also worked for Dr. Craig Guyer, assisting in the construction of cages for the reintroduction of the eastern indigo snake to previously occupied habitats in southern Alabama. Zach later began conducting research with Dr. Ray Henry, studying the physiology and behavior of giant aquatic salamanders. Zach completed his BS degree in zoology with a minor in statistics in 2011. He enjoyed his work in biological sciences, but was ultimately attracted to the more applied aspects and fascinating diversity of entomology. He thus began his master's
