Research Interests

My primary interests are in chemical ecology, particularly olfaction, insect chemical communication.  My project involves the investigation of the immediate basis for olfactory-mediated host and non-host differentiation by phytophagous insects so that we can better explain how specialist and generalist species differ in the way they process host odors in a 'chemically noisy' environment, and evolve from one extreme to another.
