Dan Hahn has worked with sterile insect technique in agricultural insect pests for more than a decade and has recently begun working on mosquitoes in collaboration with Lee County Mosquito Control District, Anastasia Mosquito Control District, and USDA-ARS-CMAVE. Dan has a Bachelor of Science from Florida State University, a PhD in Insect Science from University of Arizona, postdoctoral experience at Ohio State University, and has been at University of Florida since 2005. Although Dan is an evolutionary physiologist by training, he has become increasingly interested in using basic principles of physiology and microevolution in pest management, such as using physiological treatments to improve the performance of sterile male insects.
