I am a molecular entomologist, working on insect crop pests. Using both molecular and bioinformatic techniques, my research aims to identify and characterise the molecular basis for insecticide resistance in insect populations. I primarily work on gene editing in the peach-potato aphid Myzus persicae and also developing understanding of mechanisms of resistance to neonicotinoids in the whitefly species Bemisia tabaci and Trialeurodes vaporariorum.
