genetics, control, gene drive

Research Organisms:
anopheles, aedes


Research Focus:

I am interested in engineering insect biology. Our aim is to build new biotech tools for the genetic control of populations in the wild and in the laboratory. We use synthetic biology and computational genetics to build tools that promise to revolutionize the way human societies can sustainably tackle harmful insects.
