About

I am a neuroscientist interested in the neural circuitry that allows animals to interact with their environment through sensory experience. I completed my Ph.D. in neuroscience at the University of Colorado Medical School, and I am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Molecular & Cellular Biology at Harvard University. The current focus of my research is (1) understanding how mixtures of sensory stimuli interact with receptor neurons in the olfactory system and (2) determining how projections from the olfactory cortex to the olfactory bulb are modified through learning. Throughout my career, my research and professional development has been supported by individual fellowships from the National Institutes of Health. Outside of the lab, I teach a course on neural plasticity at Harvard College.
