Quoted in the NYTimes & BBC? CHECK!

Updated: Apr 3, 2019

To my delight and surprise I have been quoted in the NYTimes, twice! I also participated in a fun thought experiment with a BBC Future reporter.

“In a Cockroach Genome, ‘Little Mighty’ Secrets” March 20, 2018. Interview with NY Times journalist Steph Yin.


“Life With No Males? These Termites Show That It’s Possible” September 28, 2018. Interview with NY Times journalist Steph Yin.

"Tanya Dapkey, an entomologist at the University of Pennsylvania, said that there was much to learn from successful “societies in nature run without any input from males.”"

“Do Mosquitoes Feel the Effects of Alcohol?” March 14, 2019. Interview with BBC future journalist Stephen Dowling.

"Entomologist Tanya Dapkey, from the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, tells BBC Future: “I suspect the answer is no, because the blood alcohol level is going to be so low.”"
