Amy Guy

Study Director

I joined LITE (iiDiagnostics) as a Study Director in January 2020 and completed a PhD on mosquito behaviour in 2022. I completed a B.Sc. (Hons) in Biology and management in 2012 at the University of Leeds and then completed an M.Sc. in the Biology and Control of Parasites and Disease Vectors at LSTM in 2013. 

After working as a medical laboratory assistant in the NHS for two years, I joined LSTM in 2015. I worked as a technician for LITE and then as a diagnostic dose technician in the vector department before moving to a research assistant post in Dr Philip McCall’s group in 2017. I began a PhD in the Vector Biology department in March 2017. The project focuses on the effects of insecticidal bed nets on insecticide susceptible and resistant mosquito host seeking and blood feeding behaviour with my supervisors: Dr Philip McCall (LSTM), Dr Hilary Ranson (LSTM) and Dr Geraldine Foster (LSTM).  

As a study director in LITE I am the single point of contact for several studies from start to finish. I directly line manage the LITE team, coordinate, and run several projects, oversee the colony rearing and directly liaise with clients.
