This week, Jen and Ariana chat with Mohammad Turaani, an Entomology Research and Outreach Fellow (EROF) for Summer 2021! We talk about Mohammad's newfound appreciation for the research process, his favorite parts of being in the lab, the mosquito plague and the cool work he's doing this summer working on trapping methods and biological control of the Spotted Wing Drosophila! We also chat about some of his favorite hobbies like football (soccer), Arabic rapping and dancing, and some of his favorite books!
