Insect pest and endosymbionts

As part of PEARG and AGPIP, I conduct research on the dengue vector mosquito and plant virus vector aphid, in the fields of Wolbachia genome, endosymbints screening and virus transimisson efficiency.

  • Integrated management of agricultural pests
  • Novel approaches for suppressing arboviral disease vectors

Research projects

  • Characterization of endosymbionts in Australian aphids
  • Exploring interactions between bacterial symbionts and virus transmission for agricultural pest control
  • Monitoring the Wolbachia genome and associated mtDNA variants in Aedes aegypti populations
