I am a Vector Biologist in the Faculty of Natural Sciences. My research interests are in the ecological genomics of Anopheles mosquito populations within the context of ongoing malaria control interventions and the transition in malaria epidemiology. I am particularly interested in vector population genomics, vector-parasite interactions and the genomic epidemiology of malaria.
