My research focuses on how engagement of neuromodulatory systems, particularly the mesolimbic dopamine system, influence memory and memory-guided behavior. Further, I am interested in how this system develops in healthy adolescents and psychopathology. I investigate these systems in a variety of affective and motivational states including threat, reward, and novelty.
Prior to UPMC, I received my Ph.D. in Neurobiology from Duke University and completed a post-doctoral fellowship at New York University.
