Cornell physicist Itai Cohen and his graduate student, Leif Ristroph, have developed a way of taking very high speed video--8000 pictures per second or about 40 frames per wing beat--of free-flying mosquitoes. In collaboration with Laura Harrington and Ronald Hoy they have analyzed how mosquitoes actually fly.

Itai Cohen is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics, Laura Harrington is an Associate Professor of Entomology and Ronald Hoy is a Professor in the Department of Neurobiology and Behavior.
