Investigators

AID researchers are drawn from infectious disease experts from across QIMR and UQ who apply leading technologies to identify, understand and prevent infectious disease.

Associate Professor Gregor Devine

Associate Professor Gregor Devine is a medical entomologist.

He works on the entomological determinants of arbovirus and malaria transmission in heterogeneous environments.

This includes looking at:

i) The impacts of species and strain differences (e.g. vector complexes and insecticide-resistant variants) on vector ecology, behaviour and disease competence

ii) The influence of environmental variables (urban structure, temperature, insecticides) on stress, establishment and disease transmission

iii) Novel means of insecticide delivery (e.g. the auto-dissemination of larvicides, mosquito sterilants, and the volatilization of potent but safe pyrethroids) 

iv) The application of new technologies for monitoring and survey purposes (e.g. novel age-grading and mark-recapture techniques)
