Drs. Achee and Grieco are entomologists who monitor the spread of vector-borne disease around the world. In México, they monitor mosquito and tick populations connected to dengue, chikungunya, zika, and other diseases in Chiapas. Their research also develops strategies to control these vector populations and limit disease spread. They work closely with the Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León as well as the Centro Regional de Investigación en Salud Pública in Tapachula.
