Describe the broad, over-arching research interest in a way that generally describes the research activity/projects that you & your group undertake, using the format provided in the example below. E.g. Joe's research aligns to the University's research theme of Better Health. His research interests include understanding how parasites and humans interact, the management of parasites and the management of parasitic disease, particularly in third world countries. Joe's research into bed bugs has spread to working with the NIH in the USA due to epidemics of the parasite infecting large parts of New York and other cities. These parasites are resistant to current treatment regimes and, as they can carry virulent diseases, an urgent remedy is required. Joe is also researching mosquito control in Africa and Asia to determine if different mechanisms of mosquito control can alter the spread of malaria. He is also working on understanding whether different herding mechanisms of cattle alter the distribution of the Tsetse fly, which is responsible for the spread of the notorious Sleeping sickness affecting millions of people worldwide.
