Dr Brandy St Laurent

Staff Scientist

I am a vector ecologist interested in malaria transmission in areas with diverse vector species. I have done extensive field work in Southeast Asia and Africa, collecting malaria mosquitoes from forests and villages to examine their behavoir and biology.

I am now a Staff Scientist in Dominic Kwiatkowski’s Malaria Genetics group. My current work is focused on the population genomics of several malaria vectors in Southeast Asia: An. minimus, An. maculatus, An. barbirostris, and An. dirus to look at the population structure of these mosquitoes in a region where drug-resistant malaria parasites are spreading and insecticide-resistance is increasing. Information about vector population structure and patterns of gene flow will inform malaria control and eradication efforts.
