My research focuses on evolutionary genomics of malaria parasites, host-parasite interactions, and molecular epidemiology in African countries. My lab employs both field-based and lab-based approaches to address important questions of how malaria infect and spread among humans. Specifically, my work aims to advance our knowledge on (1) transmission dynamics and prevalence of Plasmodium malaria across landscape and environments; (2) invasion mechanism of Plasmodium pathogens in human hosts and; (3) spread of antimalarial resistance and impact on malaria burden. This information is critical to control and eliminate the disease in malaria-endemic countries.
