Biopesticides and Environmental Toxicology Laboratory
My research is concerned with the biochemical, molecular and proteomic study in the evolution of Insecticide resistance among Agriculture insects of Spodoptera litura 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 GST genes in conferring insecticides resistance in agricultural insects and mosquito disease vectors. An also will focus on understanding the circadian clock gene expression mechanism in agricultural insects and mosquito disease vectors.

Our lab focuses on weevils/aphids interactions with obligate symbiotic bacteria. By combining physiological observations with microscopy and biochemistry (including protein crystallography and - more recently - epigenetics) we are unravelling the various steps that led to the establishment and maintaining of the symbiotic bacteria.

Research Fellow
Drawing upon a multidisciplinary background and varied areas of expertise, my interests lie at the interface of the (micro)biology and control of parasites and disease vectors, and encompass both basic and applied research, aimed at informing disease control programs. Currently, my focus is on elucidating how disease vector-associated microbes shape host physiology and ecology, in particular, how host microbiota may be impacted by and/or contributing to the development of insecticide resistance in malaria vectors. I utilize both classical and advanced molecular biology tools to explore this in field populations of malaria vectors. My work has so far focused on parasites

Stopfer lab: section on sensory coding and neural emsembles
My research interest is in mechanistic understanding of sensory perception. For this aim, I have studied various aspects of sensory perception, from determination of function of a molecular sensor, quantitative behavioral analysis, identification and characterization of the neural pathways that control behavior. I am currently studying neural pathway underlying gustatory coding in Drosophila melanogaster and developing a tool to study sensory coding in non-Drosophilid insect Manduca sexta.

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.
