Senior Postdoctoral Research Scientist
The Pirbright Institute

My research interests focus on combining field entomology and ecology with genetic and genomic characterisation of Culicoides to investigate vector-virus-host interactions for economically important arboviruses including bluetongue virus, African horse sickness virus, Schmallenberg virus and Oropouche orthobunyavirus. I specialise in high containment arbovirology studies and the establishment of vector surveillance networks and research projects in logistically difficult areas.
