I am broadly interested in studying learning, memory and emotion using behavioral neuroscience techniques.  I have more recently become interested in how the brain's memory systems and emotional regulation systems come to function and cooperate over the course of development.  I enjoy teaching at both the introductory and upper levels.

Behavior is both a very sensitive and rapid endpoint of exposure and has important fitness implications. We study many different behaviors that are important for species survival, from exploration to courtship. In addition to this overarching theme, we are also interested in how and why individuals,...
