Neuroethology and the Role of Chemical Communication
Chemical communication is the oldest sensory system and underlies nearly every critical ecological and evolutionary interaction. My research interests are in chemosensory physiology and ecology, which pertains to understanding the influence of chemical signals on ecological interactions, and the neural basis of behavior. From the spatial scale of a sperm cell, to that of a macroorganism, the ability to locate the source of a chemical cue mediates many fundamental biological processes.
