Research Interests

I’m fascinated by the roles of various neuropeptides in the regulation of social behavior. I hope to learn more about how specific populations of oxytocin neurons affect feeding and social behaviors in mice. In addition, I’d love to explore how vasopressin and oxytocin impact early-life stress changes in social behavior. Ultimately, I want to gain insights into potential therapeutic treatments for mood, anxiety, and personality disorders.
