Assistant Professor Kyle Smith is a "Scientist to Watch"

The Scientist magazine featured PBS Assistant Professor Kyle Smith as a "Scientist to Watch" in their November 2017 edition.  Professor Smith joined the faculty at Dartmouth in 2013, and research in his lab focuses on reward response and habit formation.
