ESA Science Policy Fellows Class of 2022


(Listed below as pictured left to right)

  • Corey Day, a Ph.D. student in entomology and plant pathology at the University of Tennessee–Knoxville, researches the spatial epidemiology of La Crosse virus disease and the ecology of its vectors.
  • Kelsey E. Fisher, Ph.D., a postdoctoral research associate at Iowa State University, studies monarch butterfly and pollinator conservation in agroecosystems with an emphasis on movement ecology.
  • Sarah Gunter, Ph.D., an assistant professor at the Baylor College of Medicine, is an epidemiologist with a research focus on developing geospatial and molecular tools to better fight vector-borne disease of human importance in the United States and Central America.
  • Dowen Jocson, a Ph.D. candidate in entomology at Washington State University, studies vibrational communication in insects and insect pests to develop better IPM strategies.
  • Hannah E. Quellhorst, a Ph.D. candidate in entomology at Kansas State University, studies the behavior, ecology, and insect–microbe interactions of invasive stored products pests to help improve IPM programs, ultimately leading to increased biosecurity and food security.
