I am very interested in vector ecology and epidemiology. In particular, I have studied the effect of thermal conditions on the development of the mosquito Aedes aegypti in temperate Argentina.  I am currently interesting in the study of artificial containers that can function as larval habitats of Aedes aegypti, present in the domestic environment (private homes) in Buenos Aires City. Specifically, I want to describe and analyze the characteristics of the containers in relation to aspects such as their volume, material, shape, container filling mechanism, frequency of use and utility perceived by their owners.I am very interested in vector ecology and epidemiology.

Systematic and Ecological Studies of Simuliidae (Diptera) in three ecoregions of northwestern Argentina
Instituto Superior de Entomología "Dr. Abraham Willink", Fac. de Cs. Nat. e IML - UNT
Area of expertise: Blackflies
E-mail: josemdireni [at] gmail.com

My main interest is to learn more about the ecology, distribution and taxonomy of the representatives of the Simuliidae family and their relationship with man. From all this I intend to know more about the distribution of species in general and those of medical-veterinary interest in particular as well as to be able to define and continue with the identification work since the family presents numerous species complexes which represent a Excellent opportunity to work in the group's taxonomy.

I have interest in wildlife animal diseases. I want to know details about biting midges, their life cycle, effect on animals and remedy from them. I did work on antimicrobial resistance of Rhesus monkey. I am interest in work on controlling vector borne disease of livestock as well as wild animals. That I can take steps to conservation of last member of extinct species of wildlife.  I want to build my carrier as a wildlife biologist and conservationist in future.
