Megan graduated from URI in 2005 with a Bachelor’s degree in Biological Sciences. Since then, she has been working as a research assistant at the Center for Vector-Borne Disease, where she works on several projects dealing with tick control and ecology, as well as pathogen transmission. She is the technical field specialist in charge of a community based tick control study evaluating the 4-Poster tick control device in Narragansett, RI. The 4-Poster is a device developed by USDA that attracts white-tailed deer to a baited station where they are treated with a tick-killing pesticide, interrupting tick reproducation and the tick life-cycle.
