My research interest is in mechanistic understanding of sensory perception. For this aim, I have studied various aspects of sensory perception, from determination of function of a molecular sensor, quantitative behavioral analysis, identification and characterization of the neural pathways that control behavior. I am currently studying neural pathway underlying gustatory coding in Drosophila melanogaster and developing a tool to study sensory coding in non-Drosophilid insect Manduca sexta.
