PhD, Johns Hopkins University

Professor of Molecular & Integrative Physiology, Life Sciences Institute 

Our lab studies how animals detect sensory cues such as touch, light, chemicals and temperature, how neural circuits and synapses process sensory information to produce behavioral output, and how genes and drugs regulate these processes.  We are also interested in understanding how sensory cues regulate longevity.
