We are very pleased to announce that Dr. Niranjana Krishnan will joining the Department of Entomology as an Assistant Professor and Extension Specialist this coming Spring 2023. Niranjana joins us from the Missouri University of Science and Technology. Her work focuses on invertebrate toxicology and risk assessment. In her current research project Niranjana employs the adverse outcome pathway (AOP) principle to estimate the risk of pesticide exposures to insects, particularly species of conservation concern. This is being undertaken via three research themes that incorporate in vitro, in vivo, and in silico methods - AOP development from molecular initiating events to organismal effects, AOP development from organismal to population level effects and AOP employment to inform interspecies extrapolation. When not in the lab Niranjana enjoy reading and writing about toxicology (check out her blog EnTox Simplified), visiting National Parks, hiking on trails with her husband & dog and volunteering for initiatives that help teach science and promote diversity and inclusion. Please join us in welcoming Niranjana to the Department!
