Research Interests: neural circuits | social interaction | group behavior | sensory biology
Our goal is to understand how behavioral responses are made possible by neural circuits integrating inputs from internal states and sensory cues. We study various strains of mice in a naturalistic social context, and use a variety of molecular, genetic, and computational tools to address how organization in social interaction arises.
