Researcher interests: Genetic, molecular and physiological studies aimed at understanding the role of the female reproductive tract and its associated organs in facil- itating a successful reproduction event: dissecting the role of female accessory glands in mediating fertilization; sperm-egg interactions; reproductive aging. Genetic processes that underlie the development of the female reproductive tract. Genetic mechanisms that mediate the age-related Genetic mechanisms that mediate the age-related decline in fecundity and fertility. Sterile Insect Technique (SIT).
