We are seeking to understand rudimentary elements of insect olfaction involving signal acquisition and signal transduction using advanced imaging techniques such as atomic force microscopy in conjunction with neurophysiological recordings. We would like to get a better understanding of the evolution of olfaction in insects by using a comparative approach that involves moth species from several families, flies, and mosquitoes.

Study of insect pheromones and odor-mediated behavior, neuroethological studies of olfaction, identification and development of insect attractants for IPM systems, and development of olfaction-based biosensors
