I am interested in the reward circuitry and how it changes in response to drugs of abuse and palatable foods rich in fat and sugars. I primarily use behavioral and electrophysiological techniques to study drug associated memories and the neural substrates involved in strengthening these memories, contributing to relapse.

The main focus of my current research involves understanding the molecular and physiological changes astrocytes undergo in response to injury/disease. Of particular interest is the astrocyte and glial response(s) to spinal cord and peripheral nerve injury, using cell culture and rat as the models of investigation. The ultimate goal of this research is to better model glial changes and responses in vitro and translate that knowledge into in vivo systems to test methods of symptom/injury amelioration.

More than 1.2 billion people suffer from chronic pain globally, but unfortunately current pharmacological treatments only alleviate pain symptoms transiently and do not address the underlying pathology. My project focuses on studying chronic pain and on development of a novel therapeutic target whose down-regulation will provide relief from chronic pain.
