Areas of Expertise:
Aedes aegypti, Drosophila melanogaster
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.
