Some Teaching ---
Part of my experience here has been interacting with other researchers and students. I had the opportunity to give a general talk on ecological parasitology to an ecology class at the Universidad Cientifica del Peru in Iquitos. This past week I participated in an International Symposium on Parasite Diversity at the Universidad Ricardo Palma (URP); I presented a talk on Trematode Infection Ecology in Wetlands, as well as a general presentation on the Global Health connections I've made thus far in Peru. This week I will teach a two-day mini-course at the URP on Parasite Ecology, including some morning lectures and a trip to a nearby wetland to continue some of the snail-trematode work that we've been doing.
In future posts I hope to relate some of the additional contacts I've made here as well as news on upcoming trips I'll be taking to Puno and to Tarapoto.
