Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests focus on the bio-ecology, population genetics and evolution of insect vectors of disease:  Specifically: i) Determining the genetic structure and estimating gene flow among populations, and relate these with dispersal of genes of interest (e.g. insecticide resistance mutations, transmission-blocking genes); ii) analyzing the dynamics of natural populations in relation to environmental changes and its epidemiological repercussions; iii) Characterizing levels and mechanisms of insecticide resistance. These studies target mainly malaria (Anopheles) and arbovirus (Aedes, Culex) mosquito vectors.
