I am a Leon Levy Postdoctoral Fellow at the NYU Neuroscience Institute in the laboratory of Kathy Nagel
. Previously, I earned my Ph.D. in Computation and Neural Systems at Caltech working in Michael Dickinson’s lab
. In my research, I study physiological processes that enable animals to extract information from the world to enable appropriate behavior. Seeking mechanistic descriptions of these processes in behaving animals, I use the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster
, and a wide range of tools including intracellular electrophysiology, powerful genetic tools, pharmacology and quantitative behavioral assays. Thank you for visiting my website!
