Areas of Expertise:
Mosquito olfaction

Research Organisms:
Aedes aegypti, Drosophila melanogaster


Research Focus:

Our lab is interested in the molecular basis of host seeking in both Ae. aegypti and An. gambiae mosquitoes. The lab uses genome editing technology along with GC/MS and two-photon imaging in order to develop a deeper understanding of how volatile compounds are processed by the insect nervous system and how these interactions translate to behavioral responses involved in host seeking.
