Personal profile

Biography

I am a Research Fellow in the Institute of Vector-Borne Disease. My research focuses on the use of Wolbachia for the biocontrol of arboviruses in Aedes aegypti. Specifically, I am investigating the use and effectiveness of new Wolbachia strains, how Wolbachia evolves in the field post-release, and how nuclear and mitochondrial genomes interact to impact mosquito fitness and Wolbachia stability.
