He would like to apply for a K43 from the Fogarty International Center, a NTH grant, or an early career fellowship from the African Academy of Sciences. His future career goals are to be an independent researcher and to continue research in Senegal incorporating genomic surveillance approaches for malaria, but also applying these methods to enhance regional and global surveillance of emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases. Tn partnership with strong collaborating partners and institutions, such as Yale University in the USA, University Cheikh Anta Diop in Senegal, he intend to lead his own research group using multidisciplinary research approaches within a One Health framework.
