Volatile Organic Compounds
I am studying the bio-ecology and distribution of Aedes mosquitoes in three eclological settings (Urban, peri-urban and forested areas) of Yaoundé city, Cameroon. By identifying Aedes mosquitoes, accessing the differents stegomyia indices related to the risk of arboviruses transmission. Also I evaluate the effect of differents doses of Vectomax larvicide (Bti and Bsph) on Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus strains in laboratory and semi-field condition.
Biological control of mosquitoes vector borne disease. Entomopathogenic fungi. Mosquitoes ecology and behavior. Epidemiology.
Polytene chromosomes and new species
Primary interested in tsetse behaviour and control. Also interested in the application of low technologies as integrated vector management tools.
1. Sand fly biology
2. Xeno-monitoring of wild sand flies for the presence of Leishmania, arboviruses and Wolbachia
3. Study of VL transmission dynamics using Sand flies
4. Xenodiagnosis to identify possible reservoirs of Leishmania infection
