Personal profile

Personal profile

Dr Andrea Crampton' s research interests are divided into two strands:- 'wet' research which stems from her background as a parasitologist; and 'dry' research based on her interest in science education. Andrea's research career began with an honors project on the phylongy of cattle ticks, and a PhD on the genetic basis of pesticide resistance in ticks. Research projects since include a US Army funded project exploring the genetic basis of the Anopheles immune response to plasmodium infection (malaria); the genetic basis of human facial characteristics for future forensic uses; and integrated parasite management in sheep. A 'wet' or water research project was a study on rural drinking water quality. Under 'dry' research is her interest in the application of effective technologies in teaching science (Andrea won the international teaching with Sakai Innovation Award in 2009), and an analysis students' use of resources and academics' time.
