Theme :
I study afrotropical mosquitoes of the Anopheles gambiae complex and Anopheles funestus group. The remarkable genetic and ecological plasticity of these important malaria vectors combined with our knowledge of their chromosomal and genomic variability allow to study how ecological divergence in response to global environmental changes can lead to local adaptation and speciation.
