Chemical irritation constitutes a continuing focus. In particular, I am interested in how nasal irritation changes over time in the face of steady stimulation, and how one may trade time and concentration to maintain a constant level of detectability to understand how the sensory system integrates over time. Other interests include perception of carbonation, and chemical stimuli as triggers of cough. Within the area of olfaction, my primary interest is mixture interactions in odor detection. An additional interest that cuts across sensory modalities is in methods, to measure sensory thresholds.
