Research Interests

After graduating in Zoology at Durham University, I worked in the Gambia to test screens for households against malaria vectors (STOPMAL project). I then completed an MSc at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine in medical entomology and parasitology. My PhD at the University of Warwick involved combined theoretical and empirical field studies to model non-linearities in the blood-feeding behaviour of Lutzomyia longipalpis, the sandfly vector of visceral leishmanisis in Amazon Brazil. Now as a post-doc I am epidemiologist and field manager of a large cluster randomised trial (CRT) to test a male sandfly sex aggregation pheromone as a novel intervention to interrupt transmission of visceral leishmanisis in dogs and humans in Brazil. This is funded by Wellcome Trust Strategic Translation Awards.
