I am interested in evolutionary processes driving adaptation and evolution in mosquito vectors. In particular, my research focuses on the ability of major malaria vectors to adapt to a broad range of environmental and ecological conditions. I combine different genomic, physiological and behavioral approaches towards a comprehensive understanding of natural populations of these mosquito vectors. My fieldworks activities span several Africa regions. I use my access to field in order to fill the gap between lab-based and field-based experiments. In the last time, I focus to understand the underlying mechanisms that lead Anopheles to adapt to anthropogenic habitats, and in consequence, to became vectors.
