Jennina Taylor-Wells received a BSc in Biotechnology at Oxford Brookes University in 2008, followed by a PhD in Physiology. Her first job in 2013 was a postdoctoral position also at Oxford Brookes University, where she identified mutations in insect receptors, that were linked to insecticide resistance. Her interest in mosquitoes led her to the University of Florida in 2016. In Florida she investigated how insecticides elicit their action on mosquitoes, which provided her with a wider interest in vector control and public health. Jennina has since returned to the UK and now works in industry, continuing to research novel methods to control mosquitoes.
