    Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am currently investigating specific circuits involved in social avoidance and other emotional behaviors. Through synapse-specific modulation, I hope to uncover how various glutamatergic inputs to the nucleus accumbens regulate the ability to "cope' with stress.

    My long-term goals are to understand the distinct modes of plasticity present in different synaptic types, how these mechanisms encode experience to regulate behavior, and uncover what role they play in psychiatric disorders.
