Theme : I am interested in the chemical ecology of Anopheles gambiae s.l., the major malaria vector. My PhD work is included in the BeIn (Behaviour & Insecticide) research project which aims to decipher the behavioural modulation by exposure to insecticides in the malaria vector populations in relation with insecticide resistance mechanisms and Plasmodium falciparum infection.

My research focuses on mosquitoes olfactory perception of insecticides. To do so, I am setting up a chemical ecology platform in the CREC laboratory in Cotonou, Benin. This set up will allow me to investigate the nervous responses of different An. gambiae s.s. populations when their antennae are exposed to attractive odour plume with or without insecticides. The ultimate goal is to better understand the behavioural phenotypes observed both in the laboratory and the field.
