Training Group(s):
Integrative Neuroscience

Active Mentor - currently hosting PULSe students for laboratory rotations and recruiting PULSe students into the laboratory; serves on preliminary exam committees

Current Research Interests:

A major challenge in neuroscience is to understand how brain circuits process visual information and how these circuits are altered in Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs). To answer these questions, we use a multi-disciplinary approach combining optogenetics, electrophysiology, 2-photon imaging and behavior in genetic models of ASDs.
