Research Interests:

My laboratory uses high resolution imaging (TIRF, confocal, and multiphoton microscopy) and electrophysiological methods to investigate the molecular mechanisms underlying vesicle trafficking, membrane fusion, and synaptic transmission. Our studies are rooted in important physiological contexts relevant to the sympathetic stress response and whole-body energy metabolism.
