My research interest focuses on host-pathogen interaction. Specifically, I am investigating the interaction of the human malaria pathogen, Plasmodium falciparum and the arthropod vector Anopheles stephensi. Using transgenic technology, I aim to modify to innate immune system of A. stephensi, to increase the intensity of P. falciparum infection for live attenuated sporozoites vaccine development.
