SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS AND GOALS:

I want to gain a broad education in the neurosciences in order to understand the molecular basis of behaviour. I am mostly interested in neuropharmacology and neurogenetics. I want to understand in which way genes and their products, the proteins, influence behaviour.
