Areas of Interest
My background is in the Experimental Analysis of Behavior, Behavioral Economics, and Behavioral Pharmacology. Currently, I am completing Post-Doctoral training under the guidance of Dr. Emily Jutkiewicz in the Department of Pharmacology. Generally, I use Behavioral Pharmacology approaches to characterize environmental and neural factors that contribute to the conditioned reinforcing properties of drug-associated stimuli. Most recently, I have begun to examine the extent to which opioids mediate conditioned reinforcement.
