After completing an MSc in Applied Ecology at Imperial College London, where I specialised in Integrated Pest Management (IPM), I did a PhD at Rothamsted Research and Lancaster University. During my PhD I studied the impact of the insect virus Spodoptera frugiperda multiple nucleopolyhedrovirus on the migratory ability of the fall armyworm. This virus is also commercially available as a biological control agent. More recently I have managed a pilot project funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which tested several different technologies for a real-time monitoring of Fall Armyworm in Kenya.

Dear Sokame, Thank you so much for posting here. It is always great to have updates on current research. I had a quick look at the list of natural enemies in FAW and noticed that these two species haven't been recorded in the list, and this would also be a new record for Kenya. Would you kindly consider adding them to this list: https://faw.researchcollaborationportal.org/natural-enemies/ Alternatively I would also be happy to add them for you if that is more convenient for you, but it is always preferable that the researcher adds their own entries. It is after all your work, and we would like to have the record submitted in your name. Again, thank you for the update. This is fascinating work and it is great to have it captured here. Aislinn
