Short Biography

In my undergrad, I was in the neural tissue engineering laboratory where I helped design PEG hydrogel to improve cell transplant therapy for Alzheimer disease. As a Masters student, I was a part of the laboratory of behavioral neuroscience where we studied cocaine-cue extinction learning in rats using an operant conditioning chamber. Currently, my research is on the synaptic adhesion molecule SynCAM and its contributions to Cocaine effects on synapses structure and behavior. Also, I am characterizing SynCAM 2 KO mice.
