Areas of Expertise:
Insect control / Molecular entomology / Functional genomics / RNA Silencing

Research Organisms:
Stomoxys calcitrans / Plutella xylostella / Anopheles gambiae / Leptinotarsa decemlineata / Blattella germanica

 

Research Focus:

I am interested in all areas of molecular entomology and insect biotechnology that could provide a basis for the research of novel insect control strategies.
My current research focuses on the design and creation of transgenic Diptera for use in the field. My efforts encompass production, testing and support of all rearing aspects - including development of new rearing approaches - and also the molecular biology for the design of the genetic constructs for transformation.
