Janneke Snetselaar is a entomologist focussing on vector-borne diseases. She obtained her MSc degree at Wageningen University in 2013 with a specialisation in bio-interactions. During her MSc thesis she evaluated repellent compounds against the malaria mosquito Anopheles gambiae s.s in Wageningen and in Kenya at the ICIPE-Thomas Odhiamo Mbita campus.

From there she joined the department of Entomology at Wageningen University (2013), where she worked on the evaluation of impregnated textiles and bednets against malaria mosquitoes. After this she worked at In2Care BV (2013-2015) as a staff member Research and Development. In this positions she was involved as a researcher in the Mosquito Control Device project, funded under the EU 7th Framework program and led field trails at the Ifakara Health Institute (Tanzania) and at ICIPE Mbita (Kenya)

Since 2015 she has been based in Moshi, Tanzania as a LSHTM Research Fellow. In this position she is a Study Director for PAMVERC (Pan-African Malaria Vector Research Consortium), evaluating novel and long-lasting insecticide formulations for bed nets and indoor residual spraying.
