I am an infectious disease ecologist who specializes in the transmission and control of mosquito-borne diseases.   My primary focus is the Anopheles mosquitoes that transmit malaria, but I have general interest in the biology of insect vectors and the diseases they transmit.  

My current work encompasses study of the ecology and behaviour of malaria vectors in Africa, with the aim of using this information to improve disease control.   We are also studying the impacts of land-use change on the spread of the zoonotic malaria Plasmodium knowlesi from monkeys to people in south east Asia.  More locally, we study the insects that transmit bird malaria in Scotland.  

I have a close research and training partnership with the Ifakara Health Institute in Tanzania through which we are developing new tools for mosquito surveillance and control, and investigating the potential for mosquito vectors to adapt in response to control measures.    We are also interested in the potential impacts of environmental change on mosquito-borne diseases.
