I am interested in understanding how insect behavior, especially olfactory guided behavior is regulated. During my PhD studies, I investigated the role of neuropeptides in the regulation of mosquito host seeking behavior in the yellow fever mosquito Aedes aegypti in a multinational project in cooperation with the Philipps University of Marburg and the University of Copenhagen.
