​Ameya Gondhalekar with Beth York

The Department of Entomology welcomes Dr. Ameya Gondhalekar as Research Assistant Professor.  Dr. Gondhalekar brings over five years of experience in basic and applied urban entomology research.  A majority of his previous research has been conducted in collaboration with the pest management industry.
His interests and goals include: the investigation of molecular mechanisms of insecticide resistance in German cockroaches and bed bugs with an ultimate goal of finding ways to overcome resistance; the unraveling of mechanisms underlying various physiological phenomena in urban insects using next-generation sequencing, proteomics and functional genomics; and conducting basic research for enhancing the efficacy of non-chemical techniques used for managing urban pests.
