Translational Affective Neuroscience

about me

I am a assistant professor in the Psychology Department at UC Davis. I study the neuroscience of social and emotional behavior in both humans and nonhuman primates. My research is focused on emotional and social decision-making and the development of social anxiety disorder. This page mostly consists of some tutorials and thoughts that I consider interesting. Feel free to contact me with questions or comments.

You can find me on google scholar and find my CV here.

    Fox Lab Mission

    - - posted in thoughts

    Our feelings play a big role in our lives. Feelings help us choose, motivate our actions, and define our interactions with others. In this way, emotional tendencies define who we are now and who we are going to be in the future.

    In the Fox lab, we want to understand the neurobiology of “affective style”.
