Research Interests:

Currently in the Department of Psychiatry getting my degree in the Program for Neuroscience, I have always harbored a fascination with the nature vs nurture debates. This, combined with a personal passion for addiction research and the patients suffering from the disease, has allowed me to find a perfect home in the Center for Alcohol Research in Epigenetics. I look forward to serving the medical community and providing meaningful contributions to the field of addiction medicine for decades to come.
