Research interests

I study human psychiatric conditions in mouse models, specifically schizophrenia, depression, and anxiety disorders. My research focuses on dopamine dynamics in the prefrontal cortex and the broader cortico-striatal circuit. Using electrophysiology, neuroscience, and cellular biology techniques I measure how pharmaceutical agents affect the brain to better understand how to improve therapeutics for patients.
