FIELDS OF SPECIALTY

Connectomics, Behavioral neurogenetics, Bioimaging

RESEARCH INTERESTS
We aim to understand how genes and circuits orchestrate complex behavior in Drosophila.Three main approaches are taken: (i) to construct a brain-wide wiring diagram at single-cell resolution; (ii) to manipulate specific nodes in the circuits to understand how the brain encodes and decodes information; and (iii) to develop innovative technologies for functional connectomics research.
