Pre-PhD Trainee

I am a vector biology researcher with an interest in biology, ecology and behaviour of disease vectors. I desire to see a malaria-free world by conducting research leading towards the development and application of novel tools which will contribute to the reduction of malaria and other vector borne diseases. I hold an MSc in Tropical Disease Biology from the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and Bachelor of Education Sciences degree from the University of Malawi, Chancellor College. I am now working as a Pre-PhD trainee under the vector biology research group at MLW. My current research involves assessing the sugar feeding behaviour of anopheline mosquitoes and its impact on malaria control in Chikwawa.
