I am a research scientist at CSIRO Agriculture and Food in Canberra, Australia. Before that, I was working in the Theoretical Biology group at ETH Zürich in Switzerland, in the Department of Entomology at UC Davis and in the Department of Entomology at North Carolina State University, in Raleigh, NC, USA.

My research interests are centered on the control of pests and disease vectors. More precisely, I conduct theoretical evaluations of pest control strategies, with a particular interest on genetic control approaches, to study how the ecology and population biology of the target species impact the outcome of control strategies. My research focuses on pests of agricultural systems, as well as disease carrying mosquitoes.

My recent research focuses on malaria and the evolution of drug resistance in Plasmodium parasites. By building models of disease transmission between hosts and parasite dynamics within hosts, we are able to elucidate the dynamics of sensitive and resistant parasite strains in response to specific eco-epidemiological settings, and therefore provide guidance for control and treatment efforts that combine disease incidence reduction and resistance management.

In previous projects I have focused my research on the Aedes aegypti/dengue system. I developed a detailed modeling tool named Skeeter Buster to study and guide the development of novel strategies of control of this vector.
