B.A. Psychology; Cognitive Neuroscience Concentration, 2013, George Washington University, Washington, D.C.

Research Interests:

I am interested in studying how exposure to drugs of abuse and consumption of certain diets modify reward circuitry within the brain and specifically how these actions induce structural plasticity. I will be using a number of behavioral paradigms, staining techniques, and eventually electrophysiology to explore these mechanisms.
