I use genomics and ecology in innovative strategies to control arthropod vectors of human diseases. I established the mosquito population genomics/bioinformatics platform within two Australian institutions (University of Melbourne, QIMR Berghofer) that participate in/run internationally collaborative projects on mosquito control. My approaches, that combine genomics and spatial analyses, inform the releases of the virus-blocking bacteria Wolbachia into mosquito populations in Australia and abroad, as well as insecticide-based control campaigns. My work also aims to decipher interactions between mosquitoes and their viromes and human pathogens (dengue, Zika virus). Finally, I work towards designing and validating new gene drives for mosquito suppression.
