Mosquito vectors transmit a broad range of human viral and parasitic diseases and over one million people worldwide die from mosquito-borne diseases every year. Current measures to control arthropod-borne diseases and their mosquito vectors are insufficient partially due to the lack of sustainable vector control strategies and vaccines. The overall goal of my research interests is to study the molecular biology and genomics of mosquitoes and mosquito-pathogen interactions, leading to the development of novel control strategies for vector-borne diseases.
