Most of my time these days is spent teaching courses based on the recently published book ‘The Ecology of malaria Vectors’ by Charlwood with collaboration of a number of others. This forms the basis of courses or workshops of different durations and targeted to different audiences (from technical staff to Post-Graduate).
A number of research projects are, however, being prepared including a Randomised control trail comparing two types of PBO enhanced mosquito nets – Permanet 3 (which has the PBO on the top of the net) and Olyset Plus (where it is incorporated into the whole net). Potential locations and collaborators for such a trial are, at this time, being considered.
