In vivo electrophys. Systems Neuro.
I received my PhD in biology at MIT working with Matt Wilson. My research focuses on the role of the hippocampus and downstream brain areas, such as the lateral septum, in memory and decision making during spatial tasks, navigation, and conditioning. I am particularly interested in how these areas inform context dependent and independent learning and responses. To answer these questions, I primarily employ in vivo electrophysiology, calcium imaging, and animal behavior.
