I am an Insect Molecular Biologist, and my current research work focuses on to tag and modify insect odorant receptor neurons, which are important for insect-host interactions. I mainly work on two insect species: Manduca sexta, a crop pest and Aedes aegypti, a human disease vector. I am also interested on developing and applying genetic tools to these non-model insect species to understand the functions of critical proteins involved in the signal transduction, neuro-chemical communications, development, and reproduction.
