My group is interested in ecology, evolution, pathogen surveillance, biogeography, behaviour, climate, population genetics and conservation biology. We use a wide range of field and analytical techniques to understand:
a) Ecology and population genomics of dengue and malaria transmitting mosquito species.
b) Wastewater-based Epidemiology of pathogens, antimicrobial resistance genes
d) Host-parasite interactions: role of bird migration in exchange of blood parasites between wintering and breeding grounds.
e) How does vector emergence and environmental conditions facilitate/regulate parasite exchange?
Island biogeography and human practices drive ecological connectivity in mosquito species richness in the Lakshadweep Archipelago Mosquito larval survey sites shown in coloured dots on ten Lakshadweep Islands. The mean and 95% confidence interval bar show prevalence of artificial and natural habitats on each island.
Exploring the thermal limits of malaria transmission in the western Himalaya Extrinsic incubation period (EIP) in days of P. falciparum, P. vivax, P. relictum, Haemoproteus and Leucocytozoon for four sites of the western Himalaya. These are calculated using mean temperature (circle) and diurnal temperature range (DTR) (star) from May 2014 to April 2015. Bar represents the standard deviation.
