Curious about many aspects of neuroscience and psychology, I spend my days sharing my interests with the diverse and rewarding students of Smith College.
We research neuroscience and circadian rhythms. My lab is staffed by many Smith College undergraduates. These students go on to work in research labs, attend medical or graduate school, hold positions as professors, scientific writers, physicians, health care workers, and a range of other positions. Our lab aims to provide a foundation in student-initiated discovery-based science.
My courses include Experimental Methods in Neuroscience, Brain States, and seminars in Alzheimer’s Disease or “Neuroscience in the Public Eye”. In 2015 I will also teach Introduction to Neuroscience.
I serve as Director of the Neuroscience Program and as Study Abroad Advisor for Neuroscience majors.
