"Our lab studies how diet alters sensory and reward circuits to promote overeating and risk-taking behaviors. We are particularly interested in the interplay between metabolites, gene expression, and neural physiology, especially in the context of plasticity. 

Techniques include, live imaging, optical recordings, behavior, molecular genetics, and epigenetics."
