Broadly, I am interested in how nervous systems evolve to create novel behavioral patterns. I have studied locomotion in nudibranch gastropods (sea slugs) and sensory neurons in leeches. My research involves quantifying animal behavioral patterns in different species, identifying neurons that underlie those behaviors, and comparing the features of those neurons in different species. Below is a link to the current projects I am working on. If you are interested in gaining research experience studying invertebrate behavior and nervous systems, please come talk to me!
