I am a Leon Levy Postdoctoral Fellow at the NYU Neuroscience Institute in the laboratory of Dr. Kathy Nagel
. Previously, I earned my Ph.D. at Caltech working in Dr. Michael Dickinson’s lab
. To understand how animals acquire relevant sensory information from their environment and use these signals into guide behavior, I use the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster
, as a model. My research aims to understand the physiology of behaving animals across a range of scales, from synapses and circuits to muscles and behavior.
