I received PhD training in Cristina Alberini's lab at Mount Sinai and NYU and was a postdoctoral fellow in Catherine Dulac's lab at Harvard. I am interested in animal behavior and the biological underpinnings of emotion and subjective experience.
I received my BS in Neuroscience from the University of California, Los Angeles where I studied spatial representations in the retrosplenial cortex under Alcino Silva. I then worked with Tiago Gonçalves to uncover how experience impacts hippocampal spatial representations. I am broadly interested in understanding how animals interact with each other. Particularly, I am interested in how differences in age, sex, and environment govern social interactions.
