My research interests revolve around the molecular basis of neural adaptation. Through the integration of molecular genetics, behavioral analyses, and neurophysiology, I strive to resolve how the nervous system utilizes a finite number of genes to carefully modulate its activity and adapt to an ever-changing environment.
