My research focuses on understanding and predicting how life history strategies enable parasites to quickly respond to disease control methods, and what the consequences are for the efficacy of disease control.
I am a postgraduate research assistant with a background in Ecology, Mycology and Entomology. Currently, I am investigating the importance of biological rhythms for the survival and transmission of malaria parasites.
I am a PhD student interested in Host-Parasite interactions. In the lab, we use rodent malaria as a model to answer questions that will help us understand the evolution of different parasites strategies.
Royal Society funded PhD student investigating the evolutionary potential of malaria parasites to understand how they might counter-evolve strategies to maximise their fitness in the face of changing mosquito ecology due to the sustained use of vector control tools.
