Doctoral Student

I've been researching mosquitoes since 2010, when I started working on a phylogenetic project to establish relationships of Culex (Culex) mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae) at the Natural History Museum, London.
In 2013, with a growing interest in mosquitoes, I pursued a PhD at the University of Helsinki centred around Finnish mosquitoes, their distributions, genetics and viruses. In 2015, alongside my PhD, I joined a dengue project run jointly between the University of Helsinki and University of Nairobi, Kenya, where I have coordinated mosquito collections.
My main research interests are taxonomy/ systematics, morphology, genetics, virology and medical entomology.
