Dr Cristina Ariani

Staff Scientist

I am using genomic tools to understand ecological and evolutionary processes that affect both malaria parasites and mosquitoes.

I am an evolutionary biologist with a strong interest in host-parasite interactions, genetics, genomics and ecology. I did my PhD at the University of Cambridge, in which I studied the genetic variation of traits that affect disease transmission in a major mosquito vector – Aedes aegypti. Previously I worked as a research assistant at the Institute of Zoology in London working on the conservation genetics of endangered species. I also hold a Master degree from the State University of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, studying the ecology of lizards.
