Cyrille received a PhD in 2011 from the University of Yaounde in Cameroon on the bionomics and population genetics of An. moucheti and An. nili. He then completed post-doctoral work on An. arabiensis at the International Atomic Energy Agency and the University of California Irvine, first investigating the use of sterile insect technique for control, and then looking at the evolution of chromosomal inversions in this species. Currently, Cyrille has a Wellcome Trust training fellowship to investigate vector-parasite interactions between An. funestus and Plasmodium, and how insecticide resistance may influence these interactions. Cyrille is the deputy country coordinator in Cameroon for PIIVeC.
