Techniques and Integrative Physiology and Behavior Highlights
I am a neuroscientist funded by the NIH BRAIN Initiative currently working at Stanford University as a post-doc in Luis de Lecea’s Lab. My focus is understanding basic neurocircuitry that controls sleep and wakefulness using optogenetics, calcium imaging, chemogenetics, EEG/EMG, and other strategies.
I am further interested in how the brain and periphery communicate, specifically in the context of cancer. I am using mass cytometry approaches to characterize the effects of brain stimulation on the peripheral immune response.

Keep an eye out for my posts on the newest and coolest techniques in the field, as well as more general posts on sleep, circadian rhythms, neuroimmunology, and brain/body communication.
I look forward to seeing everyone in San Diego! If you see me, feel free to say hi!
