Research background and interest:  Biology, ecology and behaviour of mosquitoes


Research Profile

 My main research focuses on the behaviour of mosquito particularly dengue vector and their control. My research also includes the implementation of chemical and biological control for mosquito vectors.

My current research interest is study on black soldier flies, Hermetia illucens and other non-biting flies which related to their biology, distribution and control.

Current Research


 Landing behaviour of dengue vector Aedes aegypti in relation to blood-feeding and repellent
Life cycle and morphological characteristic of black soldier flies, Hermetia illucens
Bioconversion of poultry and livestock manures by Musca domestica and Sarcophaga dux
