I am interested in the intersection between physiology and behavior.  In my studies, I explore the connection between the physical properties of flightin, a myosin-binding protein found in Drosophila melanogaster indirect flight muscle (IFM) and behaviors that are dependent on IFM such as flight performance and male mating song.

I have also been working to localize another myosin-binding protein, cardiac myosin-binding protein C, in transgenic D. melanogaster using both laser scanning microscopy and stochastic optical reconstruction microscopy (STORM).
