Research and Teaching Interests

My research is focused on understanding the neurocognitive aspects of adolescent development and how drugs of abuse, such as alcohol and psychostimulants, can manipulate that neuro-maturational trajectory. Additionally, my research also focuses on the neural circuitry underlying how we learn and make decisions using a rodent model.
