I conduct translational neuroscience research that rests at the intersection of psychology, pharmacology, and genetics. My work is focused on understanding the neural mechanisms responsible for decision-making, impulsivity, and other mechanisms in relation to drug and alcohol abuse, and on developing novel treatment strategies for these disorders. Our group uses a combination of behavioral pharmacology, genetics, electrophysiology, and fMRI to conduct research in both animal and human models of choice, impulsivity, compulsivity, and other factors that may regulate hazardous drug and alcohol use and decision-making in humans.
