    Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am currently investigating specific circuits involved in reward and consummatory behaviors. Through synapse-specific modulation, I hope to uncover how various glutamatergic inputs to the nucleus accumbens regulate behaviors involved in reward seeking.

    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.
