About the lab

My research aims to better understand, diagnose, treat and prevent mosquito-borne parasitic diseases, particularly malaria and filariasis.

I am based at the Papua New Guinea Institute of Medical Research (PNGIMR) in Madang, where I head the Vector Borne Diseases Unit. My laboratory’s research is highly collaborative and we conduct clinical, field and laboratory-based studies.

Our goal is to inform the development and implementation of effective, evidence-based public health programs that will ultimately lead to the elimination of malaria and filariasis. I also aim to use our research program to develop the capacity of young researchers in Papua New Guinea (PNG).
