Household &Structural Urban Entomology Laboratory

 

 

Main research in the lab focusing on urban insect pest management (termites, bed bugs, ants, cockroaches, store product beetles) and application of molecular genetic tools (microsatellite markers; gene expression, metagenomics, transcriptiome, RNA, DNA genotyping, mtDNA sequence data) to understand breeding and population genetic structure of termites and other urban insect pest e.g roaches, ants, bed bugs and stored product beetles.   

Molecular approach and techniques for urban insect pest managements program were carried out in the laboratory,  to understand insecticide resistance mechanism and behavior especially in bed bugs and also other urban insects. Bioinformatics and computational molecular biology application were also applied to further understand the dispersal pattern of these urban insect pest in the urban environment.

Other research includes on insecticide degradation, toxicology and environmental fate of insecticides used for termite control, novel biochemical/toxicological pest management strategies for household/structural pests  and developing new biological control products controlling urban insect pest, green pest management using natural product to control the pest, liquid termiticide and termite baiting.

Prospective Student 

I am seeking student who have a genuine interest in  urban insect pest (termites, cockroaches, bed bugs, ants, store product pest). Main research will focus on controlling the pests. Higher end research will be focusing on genetics, molecular ecology, population genetics, breeding structures, biochemistry, bioinformatics, and phylogentics on this urban insect pest.

Any interested candidate can email  CV to abdhafiz@usm.my or ahafizzz@gmail.com.  No necessary background on molecular techniques needed. Training can be provided on molecular analysis portion of the research.
