Working to understand: neuronal plasticity underlying learning and memory, cellular mechanisms contributing to generation of febrile seizures (GEFS+, SMEI), and how to improve science education in research universities.
Scientific Focus: regulation of excitability and synaptic transmission in the central nervous system in flies, mice, and induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) derived neurons from patients with inherited neurological disorders (GEFS+, SMEI), effect of different teaching strategies on learning outcomes in large introductory biology classes.
