About

I am vector biology at the University of Glasgow studying the ecological, evolutionary and genetic bases of life-history trade-offs in Anopheles mosquitoes and their impact on Plasmodium parasite interactions and disease transmission. The primary aim is to implement and sustain vector control strategies to fight malaria.
