My research interests involve the integration of advanced behavioral techniques (such as optogenetics and virus-mediated neural circuit tracing) with brain slice electrophysiology and immunohistochemistry to parse out information about the underlying neurocircuitry of a behavior. Currently, my focus is on the feeding and reward circuits regulating food consumption and how dysfunctions in these circuits can lead to eating disorders.
