My research interests are focused on studying neural and computational principles of human adaptive behavior, with an emphasis on olfactory-guided behavior. My research relates to clinical research in the Neurology Department by exploring the neural basis of learning and decision-making which is disrupted in many neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and frontotemporal dementia.
