Expertise

Insect Physiology and Immunology.
Research interests include body size variation and respiratory system physiology in insects, with an emphasis on the effects of hypoxia on respiratory functions and molting. I am also interested in insect immunity and the response to bacterial and parasite infections.


Insect physiology, respiratory physiology, comparative immunology.
