Graduate Student Neuroscience Program

I received my B.S. From Northwestern University.  My research aims to reveal the roles of different classes of cells in circadian behavior and physiology.  I combine optogenetics with in vivo behavior and microdialysis to test the hypotheses that identified SCN neurons regulate entrainment and coordination of daily rhythms in locomotion and corticosterone. When I'm not in the lab, I'm attending the opera or dancing salsa.
