Ms. Nancy Stephen Matowo is a Research Scientist at Ifakara Health Institute. She joined the institute in 2011 and has since worked on a number of projects aimed at evaluating different interventions against mosquito and malaria transmissions. After completion of her degree in Environmental Health Sciences from Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences (2009), she obtained a Master of Science in Medicine (Biology and control of African Disease Vectors) from University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa in 2015. Ms. Matowo has received a number of competitive International Travel Awards to participate in international meetings and present her ongoing research. The Ministry of Health and Social Welfare, Tanzania, also awarded Ms. Matowo with a Certificate of Excellent Performance for being the best student in Environmental Health Sciences course in the academic year 2007/2008. Ms. Matowo’s research interest is in designing, developing, and evaluating outdoor mosquito control tools that complement existing indoor malaria interventions. She has published a number of peer-reviewed articles related to these topics. Her current project is on close observations and videographic analysis of mosquito host-seeking behaviours in responses to different odour attractants for optimization and effective designs of outdoor control tools, funded by the Wellcome Trust. Nancy has also been Welcome Trust Fellow since 2014, and is a recent winner of the Swiss ESKAS PhD Scholarships.
