Dr Amy Lynd recently joined the BugOut team at Green VI from the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine in the UK. Amy has over 20 years’ experience in mosquito control, and combines her expertise, knowledge, and enthusiasm to improve health outcomes via sustainable vector control.
She graduated from the University of Liverpool with a BSc in Genetics before completing her MSc in Sustainable Development in the Tropics at Edinburgh University, focusing on sustainable farming practices at a woman’s cooperative horticultural garden. Amy went on to complete a PhD at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine studying mosquito behaviour, mosquito control and the mechanisms of insecticide resistance in insects. She has since worked on mosquito surveillance and control programmes across Africa (Kenya, Burkina Faso, Democratic Republic of Congo, and Uganda) to reduce the burden of vector borne disease. Amy is passionate about science and the environment and is deeply committed to the improvement of health equality and wellbeing via sustainable mosquito control.
