Research interests

Research area: parasitology, functions of parasites in ecosystems, diversity and evolutionary biology of malaria and related blood parasites. The research has centred on translating concepts from molecular biology of malaria and other haemosporidian parasites into these pathogens’ basic biology and mechanisms of transmission, particularly how molecular data can improve research to inform the parasite diagnostics, control and elimination programs. The work is aimed to deepening our understanding of malaria and related haemosporidian parasites’ diversity by combining phenotypic and molecular approaches, including the innovative comparative genomic methods.
