RESEARCH INTERESTS: 

Connectomics, Behavioral neurogenetics, Bioimaging

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 for understanding how brains encode and decode information; and (iii) to develop innovative technologies for functional connectomic research.
