Areas of Expertise:
Gene drives, molecular biology, insect genetics
Drosophila melanogaster, Drosophila suzukii, Aedes aegypti
I am broadly interested in engineering gene drive systems in economically and medically significant insects. My current projects include developing gene drive systems such as Medea in Spotted Wing Drosophila, a major crop pest, and investigating novel ways to generate chromosomal translocations for use as gene drives.
