Ana RiveroI am a CNRS researcher at the department of Maladies Infectieuses et Vecteurs: Écologie, Génétique, Évolution et Contrôle (MIVEGEC, UMR CNRS 5290) - a bit of a mouthful that translates roughly as "Infectious Diseases and Vectors: Ecology, Genetics, Evolution and Control" - you can check us out here. We are based at the IRD Research Centre in Montpellier, in the South of France.

My research concerns the evolution of mosquito-Plasmodium interactions. We work on the physiological, immunological and behavioural alterations that take place in mosquitoes when they are infected by Plasmodium, the consequences of the evolution of insecticide resistance on the interaction, and the potential interference between Plasmodium and bacterial endosymbionts such as Wolbachia.
