Min långsiktiga grundforskning mål är att förstå den ultimata mekanismerna bakom utvecklingen av blodsugande beteende hos artropoder. Jag är också åtagit sig att skydda människor i riskzonen genom innovation av nya kemi sensoriska baserade vektorkontrollverktyg som lämpar sig för integration i olika vektorkontroll plattformar som används runt om i världen.
