SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS AND GOALS:

A fascinating feature of the brain is its plasticity. I am very curious about mechanisms of learning and how new experience changes the brain on the molecular and cellular level. My goal is to contribute to the scientific and clinical progress in finding ways to preserve memories.
