Welcome to Ambra!

Ambra Masuzzo obtained her PhD in the Royet lab at the University of Aix-Marseille, where she studied the impact of bacteria on Drosophila melanogaster‘s behaviors, including dissecting the cellular and molecular basis of bacteria-mediated oviposition suppression and gustatory detection of environmental bacteria.

She will join the Benton lab in August 2021 to examine inter-specific interactions underlying host specialization of Drosophila sechellia on Morinda citrifolia
