Research interests:

Practically all animals move, and locomotor behaviors coincide with, or even cause, widespread changes in neural activity. This poses the question: how do neural circuits function under such different conditions to execute coherent behaviors? I address this question by studying how locomotion modulates neural circuit dynamics and behavior in a genetically tractable system, the fruit fly D. melanogaster.
