    Research interests

    I will be studying the evolution of malaria var genes in the context of the parasite's transmission dynamics. The aim is to understand the forces and constraints that determine var gene diversity (which is extensive and complex), since this could substantially improve the design of surveillance methods, vaccines and interventions.
