I earned my BA in Psychology at St. Mary's College of Maryland, where I first became interested in behavioral neuroscience. After graduating in 2014 I worked as a technician at University of Maryland School of Medicine and Johns Hopkins University, using behavioral assays in rats and mice to explore topics ranging from antidepressant-efficacy to reward circuitry during Pavlovian and instrumental learning. I am interested in studying the neural mechanisms behind attention and decision-making, and how these processes are disrupted by addiction.
