MY RESEARCH

My research aims to understand how insects communicate with each other through pheromones, specialized chemical signals. We use a combination of mass spectrometry, genetic manipulation, biochemical analysis, and physiological measurements to identify pheromones in Drosophila (vinegar flies) and characterize the functional properties.

C-MĀIKI SYNERGY

We will apply our expertise in chemical analysis and physiology to better understand at the cellular and molecular level how the environmental microbiome impacts organismal health.

IMPACT TO HAWAII

Our work may help identify ways to improve the health and diversity of our environment and the organisms that live within.
