My research interests span physiology, organismal biology and ecology, including work on the physical ecology of insects; the nutritional and reproductive physiology, behavior and population dynamics of consumer-resource interactions, in particular in the context of agroecology & agroforestry; the sensory ecology of mimetism; flow sensing; locomotion in granular materials and at the air-water interface; the physico-chemical transport in olfaction and biologically- inspired micro-technology. Driven by questions, I have worked on a large number of organisms. A notable feature of my approach is the blending of natural history with both state-of-the-art technology and modeling.
