I am fascinated by the biology and ecology of the vectors - their diversity and capacity to transmit varios vector-born disease. My research is mainly focused on faunistic diversity of Culicoides biting midges and their role in the vector-parasite and vector-host interactions in the parasite-vector-host system of biting midges, avian haemosporidians and birds.
