Biography

ICIPE a centre that works on the improvement of human health in Africa. To achieve this, the institute has been working on the development of environmentally safe, and noble vector control tools which can compliment the conventional intervention tools. The Centre's has a vision to pioneer global science in entomology improving the well being and resilience of people. Capacity building is also another and I have got the chance to proceed my PhD at this centre. The reason why I am interested to join the network is that I am working on the management of malaria vectors. My PhD research work is dealing with the investigation of the chemical ecology of gravid malaria vector mosquitoes and to design a control strategy which targets these female mosquitoes. So, the information from this network could assist me to improve myself and become a well established and known researcher in human vector control. I need to participate in capacity building trainings to improve my researching capability and working with molecular technologies which are very substantial in today's science and also to get fund to conduct pilot research project on malaria vector control.
