Research

I'm interested in the genetic structure and evolutionary adaptation of Chagas disease vector, Triatoma dimidiata, in Central America. My project uses molecular technics to compare T. dimidiata populations in Guatemala and El Salvador, as well as to correlate their genetic structure to environmental factors driving their differentiation.
