I am interested in how insecticide resistance develops in the malaria mosquito (Anopheles) in endemic settings in response to intense use of insecticide treated bed nets and spraying of insecticide. I am particularly interested in elucidating the molecular mechanisms of resistance, using a variety of -omics; including transcriptomics and whole genome sequencing. I am now expanding my research into how use of insecticide-based chemistries impacts the development and subsequent transmission of the malaria parasite
