Who We Are

We study chemically mediated interactions between plants, insects and microbes. In the various projects listed above, the underlying recurring theme is to understand the communication between organisms that lead to complex networks. We use anaytical tools like HPLC, GCMS, LCMS, NMR to analyze chemicals involved in organismal interactions. We also employ various biochemical methods to conduct assays. Our team members have expertise in different areas such as chemistry, entomology, ecology, biochemistry and molecular biology. Since chemical ecology requires multi-disciplinary skill-set, our team aims to include people from various scientific backgrounds.
