Biografie

PhD thesis
Malaria mosquito radar as a digital citizen science platform against malaria in Rwanda: the biological and epidemiological perspective (Case #3.1)  

Project description
Although Long-Lasting Insecticidal Nets (LLINs) and Indoor Residual Spraying (IRS) have been used extensively worldwide and in Rwanda in particular, malaria transmission has not been halted. Causes related to the re-emergence of the disease are not well understood but have been attributed to shifted mosquito biting behaviour, such as outdoor biting and earlier feeding. A thorough understanding of outdoor malaria transmission patterns by Anopheles mosquitoes can guide the development of novel or improved vector control interventions that will reduce the contact between vectors and humans in the outdoor environment.  The project aims to use a citizen science approach using a digital 'Mosquitoradar' platform to enable entomological assessments that will help to understand the transmission parttern of malaria. This rsearch will assess how a citizen science approach can provide the entomological and epidemiological information needed in malaria vector surveillance and control.
