Research Interests

I am currently a graduate research assistant in Dr. Chana Akins’ psychopharmacology lab at the University of Kentucky. Our main research focus is drugs of abuse. Specifically, my research interests lie within the field of sex differences of abused drugs. I use a quail model to examine sex differences and hormonal control of cocaine responsiveness.
