I’m interested in the entorhinal cortical dynamics that drive working memory, temporal processing, and non-spatial sensory encoding. I am developing applications for the newest technological advancements in optogenetics, 2-photon calcium imaging, and miniature microscopes in rodent models.

My research interests are focused on achieving a systems-level understanding of behavioral deficits in mouse models of autism and neural circuit mechanisms involved in these behaviors. More specifically, I am interested in behavioral deficits associated with social touch and how network activity in cortical and subcortical brain regions is modulated by social touch in mouse models of autism.
