Personal profile

Research overview

I study the neural control of locomotion in Drosophila larvae. Work in the lab is highly integrative, involving everything from genetics to anatomy to electrophyisology and live imaging to animal behaviour. Since the Drosophila nervous system shares many of the same molecular genetic building blocks observed in spinal networks, our work is well positioned to provide insights and foundations for work in vertebrates.
