Research Interest/Area of Expertise

  •  Behavioral Cognitive Neuroscience 


I'm currently working in two labs. My primary lab is led by Dr. Bowen and we are actively researching drug abuse involving cannabinoid exposure and inhalants. My secondary lab is led by Dr. Brummelte and we are actively researching maternal behavior and its impact on development. Both labs work with rodent models and are interested in neuro, behavioral, and cognitive impacts of various drug exposures and manipulations.
