My teaching emphasizes experimental approaches to understanding human and animal behavior. The list of courses above reflect my areas of expertise. In my research, I am interested in all aspects of eating behavior. In the past, I have focused on the underlying neural processes of behavior, perception and learning, in particular, their role in regulating eating behavior. My recent research has focused on how human perception of food (hunger, satiation, taste) affects food choice and consumption. In addition, I have also recently examined eating behavior associated with emotional states, sleep quality, and drug use. My recent research collaborators include psychologists at Columbia University and the University of Leeds (UK).
I also teach courses in the biopsychology major.
