About this scholarship
The scholarship is funded by the Australian Research Council to support a project on modelling an invasive pest species and a novel control option that utilises gene drive technology.
The mosquito Anopheles stephensi is the major urban vector of malaria in India, and is now invading Africa. It has already become established in the Horn of Africa (Djibouti, Ethiopia, Northern Kenya), and was recently detected in a few locations in West and East Africa. If An. stephensi were to become established across the continent, it could enable high rates of malaria transmission in urban areas, undoing decades of progress in reducing malaria burden in Africa. To understand and mitigate the threat posed by An. stephensi we need to understand how the species is spreading, and what we can do to stop it. This project builds distribution and spread models for the species, and models a novel use of gene drives for containing the spread of An. stephensi .
