Research interests

I am interested in dissecting the emergent neural circuitry that is activated by noxious thermal stimuli experienced at the orofacial region. I am using anatomical, electrophysiological, optogenetic and behavioral analyses to investigate the connectivity and function of emergent neural circuits in processing emotional, affective, and autonomous responses to painful stimuli.
