Katherine Gleave

Research Assistant

I completed by BSc in Tropical Disease Biology from the University of Liverpool in 2011, and went on to obtain an MSc in Biology and Control of Parasites and Disease Vectors from LSTM in 2014. I joined the Vector Department in 2015.

My interest in mosquito behaviour has led me to undertake multiple studies looking into the effects of parasite infection and insecticide exposure on vector longevity, fecundity and host-seeking behaviour. I am currently working with the McCall and Ranson group investigating behavioural responses and flight of different mosquito populations around a next generation bed nets.
