Summary

My main research area is the interaction between parasites/pathogens and insects. The current project is the examination of the effect of exposure of bacteria on antimicrobial production by insect larvae. Recently completed work involved the development of trypanosomes (the causal agent of sleeping sickness in humans and nagana in animals) within the tsetse fly vector.
