Current Research Interests
I completed my doctoral research in Neuroscience at UCLA under Dr. Sotiris Masmanidis on large-scale population dynamics of striatal circuitry in behaving animals. Continued interest in how the brain generates movement during goal-directed actions led me to my current position in the laboratory of Dr. Henry Yin in the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience.
My research projects combine circuit-level interrogation of the basal ganglia with continuous kinematic measures during goal-directed behavior.
I have extensive experience in neural in-vivo electrophysiological and calcium-based recording techniques, data analysis of behavioral and neural data, optogenetic circuit dissection, and in the development of novel behavioral tasks.
