My research is focused on infectious disease dynamics in particular Chagas disease and malaria. Both of them cause important health issues in Latin America. I am interested in unveiling the parasite-vector-host interaction that are playing a role in the disease transmission, as well as in the application of molecular tools for an accurate identification of vector species in areas where cryptic or complex of species overlap.
