Bio:

Dr. Frye began his research career at Union College, then received his PhD at the University of Washington. As a postdoctoral fellow at Berkeley and then at Caltech, he began to work on multi-sensory processing and motor control of flight in fruit flies. He is currently a member of the Department of Physiological Science, and teaches courses in integrative and comparative animal physiology. He is the reciepient of a Sloan Foundation Fellowship, and his laboratory examines sensory fuison and sensory-motor integration for the control of walking and flight in fruit flies.
