Research Interest

Synapses change as neuronal circuits develop and are modified by experience. We study the molecular mechanisms that underlie the maturation of synaptic structure and function during development. We use the Drosophila neuromuscular junction as a model system because of the ease with which genetic, molecular, anatomical and electrophysiological techniques can be combined.
