Mercy Opiyo
Doctoral student
CISM & ISGlobal
Mercy is currently analyzing all our entomological surveillance data, which is not an easy task 😀 In addition, she is interested in the utility of (1) auto-dissemination of insecticides (2) larval source management strategies, and (3) spatial repellents for reducing the abundance of malaria vectors. All interventions that can potentially target resistant and/or residual malaria vectors.

Junior entomologist, CISM
Celso is assessing the efficacy of vector control tools in Magude district. He is testing the duration of effective action of the insecticides used for Indoor Residual Spraying (IRS) and will study the physical integrity and the killing effects on mosquitoes of Long-Lasting Insecticidal Nets (LLINs) over time.

Junior entomologist, CISM. Co-supervisor: Silvie Huijben
Mara is in charge of all insecticide resistance bioassays for mosquitoes from both Magude and Manhiça districts. She is setting up the intensity of insecticide resistance assays, and is looking for the mechanisms causing insecticide resistance.
