The goal of my research is to uncover how feeding behavior is regulated by taste and other nutrient sensing pathways. I currently focus on identifying the pathways mediating sweet and fat taste signaling and taste cell regeneration. My studies make use of a broad range of techniques including single-cell RNA-Seq, classical molecular genetics, histology, cell physiology and animal behavior.
