To understand how biogenic chemical signals regulate innate social behaviors at cellular and circuit levels. Our research aims to understand how the nervous system processes environmental stimuli with respect to its internal states to encode and integrates social information.

Topics of interest include understanding the neural circuitry underlying sex-specific social behaviors and the role of neuro-modulation and social experience in social behaviors. Current projects involve whole brain imaging of neural activity and quantitative measurements of behavior. Candidates can also propose new areas of investigation that are feasible within the research interests of the lab.
