About Sara

Sara Paull is a disease ecologist who oversees the small mammal and tick data collection, design optimization and quality control efforts at NEON. She also contributes to the mosquito pathogen data products. She particularly enjoys community outreach with the technical working groups and researchers interested in using those data.

Sara received a B.A. from Dartmouth College and a Ph.D. from the University of Colorado Boulder in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. She focused on interdisciplinary research in climate and health during her post-doctoral work and her time as an Assistant Professor at the Colorado School of Public Health before returning to her Ecology roots at NEON. She has worked across several systems from macro-parasites to West Nile virus and topics including climate-driven changes to disease, heterogeneity in disease risk, and diversity-disease relationships.
