Marianne is a Senior Postdoctoral Researcher specialising in the bionomics and spatial distribution of insect vectors of disease. Marianne leads the groups’s work on mosquito vectors, including the Anopheles species that transmit malaria and the Aedes species that vector prominent arbovirus disease such as dengue and yellow fever.

Marianne is currently working with a multidisciplinary team on a project to determine whether the wing beat frequency of a mosquito, alongside other peripheral data, can be used to identify vectors in malaria endemic countries (http://humbug.ac.uk/).

Marianne is also working with the NaturEtrade project developing ecosystem services layers for the tool, in particular contributing to algorithm development for insect pollination.
