Personal profile

Research Interests

My lab focuses on neural and computational principles of human learning and decision making, with an emphasis on olfactory-guided behavior. Our research relates to clinical work in the Neurology Department by exploring the neural basis of learning and behavior which is disrupted in many neurological disorders such as addiction, Parkinson’s disease, and frontotemporal dementia.
