Broadly, I am interested in the mechanisms used by the circadian clock to influence behavior on a daily basis. My research investigates the dynamic interactions between circadian clocks, cell signaling mechanisms, and behavior. I combine transgenic mouse models with pharmacological and photic manipulations to perturb the circadian clock, and investigate the subsequent changes - cellular and molecular level changes as well as behavioral changes.
