I am interested in the problem of how the multiple neurotransmitter receptor subtypes found in a single neuron get differentially localized to specific subsets of synapses. To address this problem, I have developed a method to visualize receptors at the single neuron level within circuits of the fly brain. I am currently using these tools to visualize the specificity of neurotransmitter receptor types at synapses formed by distinct synaptic partners with the help of expansion microscopy. In my free time, I enjoy exploring museums, reading about politics, hiking and taking strolls on the beach.
