Dr David P. Tchouassi
David holds a PhD in Entomology (2013) from the University of Pretoria, South Africa, MSc in Medical Entomology from the University of Ghana (2006), Legon, Ghana, and BSc (First Class Honours) in Zoology (2001) from the University of Buea, Cameroon.
He has been a research scientist in the Human Health Theme at icipe since 2015, having previously served as a Postdoctoral Fellow (2013 – 2015).
David’s research focuses on transmission ecology and epidemiology of malaria and arboviral diseases, with a keen interest in the chemical ecology of their associated vectors. Integral to this is extensive surveillance involving laboratory and field experiments for improved understanding of the ecology of malaria and arboviruses of public health significance, identification of weak links in vector-pathogen-host interactions for control, and the development of biocontrol methods (semiochemical-based) for vector surveillance and epidemiological investigations.
