My research focus is on arthropod vector- host-pathogen interactions. I aim to understand at the molecular level how pathogen infection levels are sustained in arthropod vectors and what factors determine infection rates in arthropod vectors in endemic areas. Defining these factors might reveal ways to control vector-borne diseases.
