Areas of Interest
- Eating Disorders
- Obesity


We use laboratory mice to investigate the neuronal and molecular substrates that govern motivation, palatability, taste, and ingestion to develop novel and more effective treatments for obesity and eating disorders. Combined with neural circuit tools like optogenetics, chemogenetics, and biosensors, our work maps neural circuit function onto discrete aspects of conserved feeding behavior.
