Research Interests:


I am a 3rd year graduate student in the Experimental Psychology: Cognitive Neuroscience Phd program working with Dr. Michael Bardo to study opioid use disorder (OUD). My research in the Bardo lab is focused on developing novel and effective preclinical models of OUD, with a concentration on relapse, sex differences, and the intricate social factors involved in OUD. I am fascinated by the impact of social stress and escalated intake on relapse in OUD, and the overlapping brain areas associated with stress, escalation, and OUD. I hope to pursue this line of research in the future, and further improve the understanding of OUD by creating translational models that better represent the human condition.
