Dr Marta Maia

Principal Investigator


Marta is a medical entomologist, with background in veterinary medicine, based at KEMRI Wellcome Trust in Kilfii since 2016. Before joining the programme she worked as a postdoctoral scientist and PI at the Ifakara Health Institute in Tanzania investigating spatial repellents, topical repellents, attractive targeted sugar baits (ATSBs), plant-based repellents, mosquito attractants, as well as near infrared spectroscopy for surveillance of mosquito vectors. She is interested in understanding the ecology and behavior of malaria vector populations in response to new interventions as well as the development of new tools for characterizing and monitoring vector populations.
