Research in my lab uses the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster, as a model system for understanding neural development and function and neurological disease such as epilepsy. Drosophila is a very well studied and widely used organism so our studies can utilize information gathered and tools developed by many other investigators. In addition, I have collaborative projects that use computer modeling to look at the role of networks in communication and decision-making.
