About Claudia Rückert
I'm an arbovirologist currently working in Greg Ebel's lab at Colorado State University. I have a background in tick cell research, but I am passionate about mosquitoes and the viruses they transmit. I am interested in determinants of mosquito vector competence, virus-vector interactions in general, as well as virus evolution. I received my PhD in Virology from the University of Edinburgh, after getting an MS in Infectious Diseases and BS in Biology at Heidelberg University in Germany. I am German, currently living in the US, with a love for Scotland and the UK in general.
