Research Interests

I work at the intersection of ex vivo electrophysiology, systems neuroscience and behavioral health. Broadly, I study the cellular basis of alcohol addiction and it’s comorbidity with neuropsychiatric disorders—between sexes and across the lifespan. My research agenda is motivated by a desire to understand how unique neurological insults may underlie alcohol addiction, and how age- and sex- specific treatments may be developed.
