Research interests

Chemical ecology and behaviour of insects (honeybees, wild bees, coleopterans, lepidopterans), attractants, repellents, insect-pollinator and plant interaction, pest-host interaction, honey bee olfactory learning, honey bee diseases (viruses and microsporidians), Lithuanian native honeybee – Apis mellifera mellifera. Research techniques: electrophysiology techniques (electroantennogram) coupled to gas-chromatography. Techniques to measure insect behaviour in relation to olfaction (olfactometer, field trapping); molecular biology methods (RNA and DNR isolation, PCR Techniques, Gel Electrophoresis).
