Dr. Peach's research interests are in the field of arthropod vector ecology, with a focus on behavioural and sensory ecology. He is primarily focused on how arthropod vectors, such as mosquitoes, find and interact with resources such as the hosts they bite or the breeding sites they use, and the implications of this information for mosquito monitoring and control as well as understanding species and pathogen distributions. He completed a BSc (with distinction) in Environmental Science from Simon Fraser University, where he also completed his PhD investigating the cues that mosquitoes use to locate floral nectar and their potential use in mosquito traps.
Dr. Peach has received numerous awards and distinctions for his work, including the Provost's Prize of Distinction from SFU, advancing to the national finals of the Three Minute Thesis competition, and being featured in the Graduate Student Showcase at the international joint meeting of the Entomological Society of Canada and the Entomological Society of America.
Dr. Peach is currently a postdoctoral fellow in the lab of Ben Matthews at UBC. He is also a director of the Entomological Society of British Columbia.
