    Personal profile

    Research

    My research passion lies in chemical ecology and vector control. My current post-doctoral research involves understanding the attraction of hematophagous insects to blood sources. I will look into olfactory cues used in blood feeding through the use of both chemical ecology and molecular biology.

    I received my M.Sc. from London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine where I had the opportunity to work on a project based in Brazil where I studied the chemical ecology between sugar sources and sandflies. This led to conducting my PhD studies in the Chemistry and Biotechnology Department at the Federal University of Alagoas in Brazil. Throughout my PhD studies I investigated the olfactory cues that attract Stomoxys calcitrans to livestock and sugarcane mills. In addition to my main project I also had the opportunity to collaborate in other research projects, which led to me joining Marcus Stensmyr’s group at Lund University.
