Anandasankar Ray explores the sense of smell and how insects smell odors in their environment to find food, avoid predators, and find mates. Studying how tiny odor molecules act as receptors in the nose, or antenna, provides information to understand how a fruit fly finds fruit, how a hungry female mosquito finds a human being, or how an Asian citrus psyllid finds an orange plant, leading to the development of sensory blockers that will inhibit or prevent the spread of deadly diseases.
