I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Addiction Neuroscience lab. I am interested in the evolution of brain circuits underlying innate behaviours. Salt appetite is a prototypical innate behaviour, whereby salt-depleted animals exhibit a strong instinctive drive to seek and ingest salt.

My current research focus is centred on the neural substrates underlying salt appetite, with a particular focus on endogenous opioid signalling in the central amygdala.
