Research interests and activities 

Dr Mary McIntyre's background is in ecology/entomology, and she is a past convenor of graduate programmes and papers in both Conservation Sciences (Victoria) & Public Health. Research interests draw on both fields since it is the same anthropogenic environmental processes leading to decline and extinction of some species that promote overabundance and spread of others, notably pests and pathogens. Topics include mosquito ecology, public health entomology & biosecurity, ecosystems & emerging arthropod-borne and zoonotic pathogens, ecological ‘health’ & sustainability.
