New panelists + new reports

The first quarterly report for 2020 activities has been published and can be viewed here.

We are also pleased to announce that, although Dr. Tim Gottwald has retired, his DATOC position has been filled by Dr. Lukasz Stelinski, a professor of Entomology and Nematology at the University of Florida. Dr. Stelinski has worked for over a decade with Huanglongbing, the Asian citrus psyllid, and related topics. His research today focuses on citrus and he specializes in vector-pathogen interactions, plant-insect interactions, insect behavior, and integrated pest management. In just a few short weeks of membership, Dr. Stelinski has already provided valuable input on team projects.

We are grateful to Dr. Gottwald for the time he spent providing our team with a wealth of expertise, always freely given. Dr. Gottwald was an invaluable part of DATOC’s membership and we wish him good health and much contentment in his retirement!
