As well, he is involved as an expert of entomology in an 8 years-long program of mosquito control in the country for the entomological surveillance and monitoring of the process of mosquito larval control. His main interest is the research focused on mosquitoes and their control. He has been part of several projects, has published several papers on mosquitoes and rodents, as well, he has participated in oral and poster presentations in Scientific Conferences and Congresses in Europe and Asia.
