Research Summary

Neural circuit mechanisms of behavior


Research Statement

I am interested in identifying the pathological adaptations that occur across neural circuits to promote dysregulated reward seeking behaviors. I use circuit-dissecting electrophysiological, advanced gene editing technologies and behavioral paradigms to achieve this goal.
