Chris Jones

Vector biologist at LSTM and Malawi

Chris is a Senior Lecturer at LSTM based at the Malawi Liverpool Wellcome (MLW) Trust Research Centre in Blantyre, Malawi. Chris has a broad interest in vector ecology and how it relates to disease transmission. In particular, he is interested in insect dispersal, the evolution and emergence of insecticide resistance, fitness costs and the impact of interventions on vector populations. At MLW Chris is establishing a Vector Biology research programme based on the above themes with the goal of improving the delivery of targeted vector control interventions with particular focus on reducing disease burden in Malawi.
