Areas of Expertise:
Insect genetics and transposable elements

Research Organisms:
Aedes aegypti, Anopheles, Drosophila melanogaster

 

Research Focus:

I am interested in how transposable elements work both in vitro and in their host organisms. I am interested in how transposable elements can be harnessed as gene vectors in insects and also how they can be utilized in genetic control strategies.
