Interaction of Wolbachia and mosquito immune system.
Genetic control of mosquito populations.

Biographical Information

I am a DPhil student in the Sinkins Laboratory, Department of Zoology, University of Oxford. I research the interaction of the endosymbiotic bacteria Wolbachia with the mosquito immune system, focussing on the Polynesian mosquito Aedes polynesiensis, a vector of lymphatic filariasis. I hold a BBSRC CASE studentship with an industry partner, Oxitec, who engineer genetically sterile mosquitoes to improve mosquito population control via the sterile insect technique (SIT).

I graduated in Natural Sciences with a final year in Zoology, focussing on evolutionary genetics, early embryo development and population biology. My undergraduate project examined the genetic basis of insecticide resistance in the diamondback moth, Plutella xylostella.

I am also an open scientific data advocate and coordinate the Open Data in Science Working Group at the Open Knowledge Foundation.
