Research

Aside from taking care of the day to day working of the lab, I’m responsible for training all the new lab members in the model system, Drosophila melanogaster, and genetics. I also assist lab members with their projects. Currently, most of my time goes into working with Floris in understanding the search behavior of fruit flies in response to odors associated with fermenting fruit such as CO2.
