About

I am currently working at University of Ottawa, Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine as an Assistant Professor and Principal Investigator. Our lab is focusing on "Understanding social behavior using simple genetic model systems and its application into reverse engineering" Below are our interests. -How do Drosophila melanogaster change their behavior dependent on social-context? -Can we understand the underlying comprehensive neural circuitry and genetic components of these social behaviors using Drosophila melanogaster? -Can we formulate and reverse engineer a eusocial behavior using this knowledge? -Can we develop efficient pesticide using neuropeptide receptors that are responsible for such behaviors?
