Bio


As a postdoctoral fellow in Dr. Gary Peltz?s lab, my project is focused on identifying and characterizing genetic factors affecting responses to drug of abuse. As a doctoral student, I used a multidisciplinary (neuroanatomical, physiological and behavioral) approach when I studied the effect of neuropeptide signaling on social behaviors. Now, as a postdoctoral trainee, I have acquired experience with transcriptomic and epigenetic methods for studying complex biologic processes. Therefore, I can utilize state-of-the art genetic, molecular and behavioral paradigms for characterizing genetic factors affecting responses to drugs of abuse, and for identifying potential new preventative treatments for drug addiction.
