Research/Scholarship: 
Dr. Chen’s research focuses on development of novel intervention strategies for mosquito-borne diseases. Mosquitoes are native reservoirs and transmitters of parasites, pathogenic bacteria and arboviruses. Symbiotic microorganisms in mosquitoes maintain complicated relationships with their host and influence many aspects of host physiology. He is interested in 1) understanding how mosquito symbionts (such as flavobacteria, Wolbachia and Asaia) impact on host development and health; 2) studying how symbionts interact with parasites and viruses in mosquitoes; and 3) deploying symbiotic microbes to produce mosquitocidal toxins, anti-parasite and anti-virus effector molecules.
