I am queer and I am a mosquito neurobiologist. //

I’m interested in insect brains and behavior, and as a grad student I study how mosquitoes hunt humans: what sensory cues they use (visual, thermal, olfactory), and how they make moment-to-moment decisions as they fly toward us. I do science, organize LGBTQ+ community at my school, and draw comics from my vantage point as a queer/bisexual nonbinary Chinese-American.
