Fiona began her studies at the University of Vienna, Austria, where she obtained a B.Sc. in biology with a specialism in biological anthropology. Subsequently she completed an M.Sc. in Infection Biology at the University of Glasgow, Scotland, where her research project focussed on cell cycle control of African trypanosomes. Driven by an interest in tropical diseases and medical entomology, she started her PhD on the biting behaviour of different mosquito species at the University of Greenwich in October 2017. The goal of this study will be to obtain more information about the biting behaviour of mosquitoes of medical importance for humans to develop improved epidemiological models.
