SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS AND GOALS:

I am especially interested in molecular neuroscience. In general, I want to understand the molecular and biochemical mechanisms of signal transduction, synapse function and formation. I see myself researching in the area of neuroplasticity to understand its role for behavioral differences and disorders.
