Current profession

Current professional activities type: 
Higher Education Study
in my current research i am using geo-spatial technology to map mosquito breeding habitats, characterizing the primary and secondary vectors as well as their susceptibility or resistance to insecticide in both laboratory reared and field caught adult females and determining the mechanism behind the resistance in Delta state, Nigeria.
