Development of a new tool for malaria mosquito surveillance to improve vector control

Malaria transmission is influenced not only by vector abundance, but as well by demographic traits such as vector species and age structure, as these influence the intensity by which the …

Data-driven Models to Assess Impacts of Integrated Vector Management strategies on Mosquito-borne Diseases.

The project intends to develop and support informatics system for collating and standardizing entomological and environmental datasets. Also, to develop effective user-friendly interfaces that enable multiple researchers to more effectively collaborate, share, and synthesize data using standardized formats across multiple studies and sites. The main focus is the development of vector control optimization model that can be used to evaluate impacts and cost-effectiveness of combined vector control tools at the mosquito population level in a range of eco-epidemiological settings. The model that can assist researchers and program decision-makers on the design of experimental or operational research to test vector control interventions – the model that can potentially be extended to work for other mosquito-borne diseases.
