Interest
My broad research interests include ingestive behavior, neuroinflammation, and neuroendocrinology. My current research project utilizes a model of binge eating disorder in female rats to study how the overconsumption of an energy dense diet promotes inflammation in brain regions implicated in the neural control of food intake and energy balance.
