Personal profile

Research Interests

My research focuses on the effects of estrogen in the central nervous system (CNS) and, in particular, on behaviors related to energy balance (i.e., feeding) and to body fluid balance (i.e., water intake, salt intake). I use ovariectomized rats to investigate estrogen effects on central neural pathways and neurotransmitter systems involved in these motivated behaviors and physiological processes.
