    As an Assistant Professor in the Psychiatry department at UCSF, my research focuses on understanding the neurobiological mechanisms underlying G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) activation and its impact on neuromodulation. Neuromodulation by GPCRs is a key process required for information processing involved in most behaviors. Psychiatric disorders are believed to in part arise from dysregulation of neuromodulators and therefore the study of GPCR regulation is key to developing new therapies. Additionally, my research focuses on the role of GPCR activation at distinct membrane domains such as the primary cilium and how compartmentalization of receptor signaling impacts psychiatric disorders.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
