Lone & Pair Mosquito Auditory Interaction

In this project we focus on two aspects of mosquito behaviour that are central to their reproductive cycle: mate interaction and swarm formation. Much evidence indicates that mosquitoes use sound, specifically that made by the beating wings of their neighbours, as a means to interact with one another. We investigate the role of acoustics in these group behaviours, using empirical, analytical, and computational approaches, based on high-resolution recordings of individuals and groups of mosquitoes.
