Director: Medical Entomology Laboratory

Research:

I aim to elucidate the impact of environmental change on mosquito-borne pathogen transmission and control. I do so through studying mosquito behavioral ecology and physiology, and mathematical modelling of vector demography, population dynamics and pathogen transmission. I am also interested in understanding how human behavior or host factors (e.g., patterns of movement and differential exposure to vectors) affect pathogen spread and control. I am working toward optimizing control strategies by incorporating economic (e.g., cost-effectiveness analysis) and evolutionary approaches.
