Areas of Expertise:
Insecticide resistance, functional genomics, entomology, neuroscience, olfaction.

Research Organisms:
Anophles funestus, Anopheles gambiae, Anopheles arabiensis, Aedes aegypti, Aedes albopictus, Culex quinquefasciatus and Drosophila melanogaster


Research Focus:

My current research focus is on understanding the molecular basis underlying the insecticide resistance in the African malaria-mosquito, Anopheles funestus, using functional analyses. I also have interest in the functional characterization of genes involved in insecticide resistance in agricultural pests, in insect behavior, and in the elucidation of the molecular basis of the olfaction in Drosophila melanogaster and in malaria and dengue vectors.
