Her primary research interests include investigating common mechanisms underlying associative learning of opiate-related cues and stress enhanced fear learning, a model for PTSD. She earned her B.S. in Integrative Neuroscience from Binghamton University in 2017. There, she worked as an undergraduate research assistant and laboratory technician for Dr. Terrence Deak, where she studied the neuroimmune consequences of stress and acute ethanol exposure.
