My interests are in odor perception and how the organization of the olfactory system contributes to this process. More specifically, I am interested in the bulb's role in odor processing, how the different cells in the bulb contribute to its function, and how the olfactory system communicates with other brain regions to relay this information. Using the mouse olfactory bulb as a model system, I study how odor perception effects things like odor identification, adaptation, sensitivity, threshold, and behavior. I am also interested in studying how fear learning and memory can affect these specific variables.
