I earned my BA in Neuroscience from Drew University, where I first delved into electrophysiology, performing single-unit recording experiments in rats aiming to dissect the microcircuitry of corticomedial amygdala, in response to odors. After graduating I interned at Lundbeck, where I combined electroencephalography with behavioral tasks to assess cognition in rats and aid in drug research and discovery. Finally, before coming to the University of Maryland, at the City University of New York's Brooklyn College I performed a wide range of Pavlovian and Instrumental behavioral experiments in order to better understand the neural mechanisms of extinction learning in rats.
