  1. A postdoctoral position on visual and olfactory integration in mosquitoes. The project focuses on olfactory coupling between visual and olfactory systems in the Aedes aegypti mosquito. The project is an NIH-funded project for five years.
  2. A postdoctoral position on the effects of biogenic amines on mosquitoes. The four-year project examines the effects of ingested biogenic amines on Anopheles stephensi mosquito behavior and physiology.
  3. A postdoctoral position on olfactory learning in mosquitoes. This three-year project examines appetitive and aversive learning of host cues in Aedes aegypti mosquitoes. The project spans electrophysiological and neurogenetic approaches and quantitative behavioral assays.
