Short Bio:

Adolfo Ibáñez-Justicia, Spaniard, PhD, is since 2010 a senior researcher employed at the National Reference Centre (NRC) of the  Netherlands Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority (NVWA). Since then he worked on contingency plans, quick scans for new introduced insect species, and pest risk assessments. Since 2011 he focused his work at the Centre for Monitoring of Vectors (NRC-NVWA) on collecting, analyzing and publishing data on vector species, making habitat suitability models, and advising on surveillance and control actions against invasive mosquito species. His research interests are focused on surveillance, risk assessment and risk mapping of vectors of diseases.
