My main research interests lie in the hormonal and genetic modulation of social behavior. I am particularly fascinated with uncovering how early life experience, through interaction with genetic and hormonal physiology, can impact the processing of social cues in infants and their mothers. I am currently investigating how epigenetic modification of the oxytocin receptor gene impacts infant neural response to emotional expressions.
