The Combes Lab

 

Biomechanics and Behavioral Ecology of Flying Insects

Our lab is located at Harvard’s Concord Field Station in Bedford, Massachusetts, where we perform lab and field-based studies to understand how insects perform complex flight behaviors in unpredictable environments.  We work on a variety of insects, with a particular focus on how dragonflies, bees, and flies interact with other flying insects and with their physical environment.
