Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our laboratory studies the mechanisms by which highly complex behaviors are mediated at the neuronal level, mainly focusing on the example of dynamic social interactions and the neural circuits that drive them. From dyadic interactions to group dynamics and collective decision making, the lab seeks a mechanistic understanding for the fundamental building blocks of societies, such as cooperation, empathy, fairness and reciprocity.

Associate Professor of Neurobiology and of Ophthalmology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My lab is focused on brain function, development and repair with emphasis on regeneration to prevent and cure blindness.
We also study the neural circuits that merge perceptions with internal states, in particular, visual fear.
The specific conditions we aim to understand and develop therapeutic strategies for include: retinal and optic nerve damage in glaucoma, and disorders of visual-limbic integration, such as visually-evoked phobias and PTSD.
