Thesis title: Pre-and-Post-release evaluation of a newly imported parasitoid Dolichogenidea gelechiidivoris (Marsh) for the suppression of Tuta absoluta (Meyrick) in Kenya

Supervisors: Prof. M.P Hill; Dr. S. Mohamed; Dr. S. Ekesi; Dr. M. Zalucki

Pascal is a young researcher from the Niger-Delta region of Nigeria. His current study is focused on untangling crucial aspects of the bio-ecology; encompassing the host specificity, thermal biology and tri-trophic interactions of a larval endoparasitoid newly imported into Africa from Peru, with the intention of mass release for the suppression of the South America tomato pinworm Tuta absoluta in Kenya and probably across Africa. He is based in Nairobi, Kenya.
