I am interested in how neural circuits control motivational behaviours. I approach the question by combining genetic interventions of defined neuronal populations with detailed, quantitative analysis of behaviour. I am a research fellow at Adam Claridge-Chang’s laboratory in Singapore, studying the role of neuromodulatory circuits in foraging and feeding in the vinegar fly. I have previously studied serotonin regulation of intertemporal decision-making in mice at Susumu Tonegawa’s laboratory in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
