Personal profile

Research Interests

My research interests center around small rodents called prairie voles which are about the size of a mouse, and are among the few mammalian species that display permanent monogamous pair-bonds. My lab studies the neuronal, endocrine, physiological, and behavioral changes that are associated with the formation of such pair-bonds
