Areas of Expertise:
Inscet Toxicology, Vector control

Research Organisms:
Mosquitoes and agricultural pests


Research Focus:

My research is concerned with the biochemical, molecular and proteomic study in the evolution of Insecticide resistance among mosquitoes and to identify novel molecules for insect control. My work includes molecular and proteomic analysis, in addition to understanding the gene expression pattern of detoxification enzymes. Mainly my research focuses on the role of cytochrome P450 and esterase genes in conferring insecticides resistance in mosquitoes and agricultural insects.
