GENERAL STATEMENT ON RESEARCH AREA(S)
Am Medical Entomologist with a diverse ecological background, with great interest in the ecology of disease causing vectors. My recent research has focused on mosquito ecology and malaria vector control. Trying to find non chemical alternatives for mosquito vector control that are easily accessible by the affected rural communities. Other areas of interest include: Insect Ecology, Public Health, Resource Conservation and Population studies.
