My work focuses on exploring the chemical ecology of haematophagous insects. I investigate the development of new repellents and attractants based on insect response to odours, examining both their behavioural and electrophysiological responses. Currently I am investigating whether mosquitoes infected with malaria shift their host-seeking responses to increase likelihood of disease transmission.
