    Collapse Overview
    As a postdoctoral fellow at UCSF I am working on several related projects examining interactions between alcohol and tobacco. I am interested in how chronic alcohol consumption may alter the rate that nicotine is metabolized, and how this relates to differences in smoking amount and dependence. I am also examining the prevalence and characteristic of E-cigarette use by individuals in treatment for drug and alcohol dependence. The goal of this work is to understand how a population with a high rate of tobacco dependence and poor smoking cessation outcomes is using these new nicotine delivery devices.

    I received my PhD in Behavioral Neuroscience at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland, OR. My dissertation research utilized behavioral and genetic animal models that have been well established for alcohol research to study the combined effects of nicotine and alcohol on reward and neuroadaptation.
