Collecting mosquitoes in Tanzania using a CDC light-trap.

Collecting mosquitoes in Tanzania using a CDC light-trap.

I am a postdoctoral researcher in population genetics working with Prof. Austin Burt at the Silwood Park Campus. I am involved in a collaborative project aimed at developing the use of genetic methods to control the malaria vector Anopheles gambiae.

My involvement in the project is at the ‘wild’ end, mostly in looking at spatial and temporal gene flow in natural populations of East African Anopheles mosquitoes. I am also collaborating with Jake Bundy and Sarah Davies to identify age-determining metabolites using nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and GC-MS.
