About Yao

I did my PhD from 2010 to 2015 in Italy to the Sapienza university working on the human genetics role (G6PD, alpha thalassemia, beta globin) in Plasmodium falciparum transmission from human to mosquito. During these years, I acquired skills on experimental infection of mosquitoes (DMFA), medical entomology, molecular biology, parasitology and experience in demographic survey. After my PhD, I were co-investigator of PREVECT project, were I worked on Seasonal malaria chemoprevention and host-vector transmission with the Institut de Recherche en Sciences de la Santé (IRSS/DRO). Since 2015 until end of 2017, with the French research Institute IRD in collaboration with IRSS, I worked as postdoctoral research associate on PANIC project, on a new approach for infectious diseases control to Bobo Dioulasso, Burkina Faso. Now, I am field entomology coordinator on Target Malaria project at IRSS.
