Education:

Research Interests:

My research goal is focused on finding environmentally safe ways to kill the vectors of disease. To achieve this goal, I study in detail, the biological processes occurring in the insect midgut after ingestion of food and how they affect mosquito survival. Understanding these processes may help in finding new techniques and tools offering the potential to reduce disease vector populations and/or prevent pathogen transmission without harming the environment.
