Areas of Expertise:
SSR and EAG recording, Repellency behavioral assay

Research Organisms:
Drosophila & Mosquito

 

Research Focus:

My study is focus on inspect olfactory response of insects (Drosophila & mosquito) to chemical repellent. I employ Single Sensillum Recording (SSR) and Electroantennogram Recording (EAG) to screen candidate chemicals affect on specific olfactory receptors. Meanwhile, I develop T-maze assay and hand-in-cage assay to show insects' aversive behavioral response to candidate chemicals.
