Mon objectif est de définir les mécanismes moléculaires, cellulaires et endocriniens qui contrôlent les comportements complexes des mammifères tels que l'agression, l'accouplement et la reconnaissance des congénères. J'étudie la manière dont les signaux sémiochimiques comme les phéromones, les kairomones et les autres signaux sociaux olfactifs, et leur détection par le système olfactif des mammifères, permettent d'induire des interactions sociales appropriées. J'utilise  des outils génétiques moléculaires chez la souris, l'électrophysiologie, l'imagerie du calcium, la neuroanatomie et l'analyse comportementale pour déterminer les circuits neuronaux qui activent le comportement social.
