I became interested in neuroscience as an undergraduate at the University of Wisconsin, where I also fell in love with life in the lab. I worked in labs in Germany and San Diego before starting graduate school at UCSF, where I studied social behavior using molecular genetic approaches in mice. I moved to Stanford for a postdoc where I applied these techniques to cichlid fish, and became fascinated with this family of animals. I look forward to combining evolutionary biology and neuroscience techniques to unlock the mysteries of the social brain.
In my spare time I love exploring cities with my wife and daughter and eating delicious food.
