I am interested in using both mathematical modeling and experimental methods to examine neurobiological systems at the behavioral level. In particular, I am applying concepts from stochastic processes and control theory to better understand the highly robust and efficient odor plume navigation behavior exhibited by the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster.

See my personal webpage for more up-to-date information.
