Office: Gold Biosciences A220C

Education: PhD, Emory University, 2009

Research Interests: My interdisciplinary lab is housed in the Department of Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology and the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience at University of Colorado Boulder. We study the mechanistic basis for individual differences in behavior and how these impact likelihood to develop mental illness. Our work utilizes mice, prairie voles, and post-mortem human tissue, in advanced neurogenetic and circuit-level analysis to better understand how genes and environment shape who we are.
