       Overview 
       Overview
      Since 2010, I have been a postdoc in Scott Baraban's lab working to understand the neurobiology of epilepsy. Before that, I was a graduate student in Bret Smith's lab at Tulane University and University of Kentucky. My current research focuses on the development and function of inhibitory interneurons of cerebral cortex, a highly diverse group of nerve cells that are critical for maintaining the functional balance in the brain.
