My research in the Ke Dong lab focuses on elucidating the repellency mechanisms of insecticides (pyrethroids) and essential oils (plant-derived compounds) in mosquitoes (vector of human diseases, such as yellow fever, Dengue, Zika, and malaria). I am also investigating the role of voltage-gated ion channels in the biology and behavior of invertebrates using molecular and electrophysiological approaches.
