- My research interests involve understanding the neural circuitry and mechanisms that influence ingestive behavior. Food intake is influenced by many diverse factors that relay information about metabolic state, ingested nutrients, and the rewarding aspects of food intake. Using pharmacologic, behavioral, and neuroanatomical techniques, my work has focused on understanding how dysfunction in neuroendocrine systems that govern satiation and food reward processes can consequently promote behaviors such as the pathological overconsumption of palatable foods.
