My current research interests lie in investigating vector competence for arboviruses. I am particularly interested in the effect of temperature on virus transmission, including the minimum environmental temperature required for transmission, to identify regions at risk from invasive or endemic viruses. I am also interested in the potential for viruses to adapt to different conditions, and consequently, the risk they may pose in the future.
