Our lab studies intersection between visceral sensation, organ function and emotions.  We are in pursuit of comprehensive understanding of how brain interprets, adapts and responds to signals from the peripheral organs during normal and pathological states and how it shapes our emotions. We implement genetic, molecular and neuroanatomical tools to study these questions across the nervous system to link genes, cells, circuits, and behavior.

We strive for excellence in science we do and believe in creating supportive and inclusive environment regardless of race, background, or beliefs. We want and welcome students and scientists from under-represented and disadvantaged groups to pursue scientific opportunities with our group.
