Tyler Akonom
Integrative Physiology Lead
Lead Graduate Fellow 2021-22

I'm currently pursuing a co-sponsored PhD with Dr. Pei-San Tsai and Dr. Christopher Lowry in the integrative physiology department and am in my second year of my PhD (fourth year in grad school overall). As a PhD student my research interests focus on the reproductive brain, inflammation, and anxiety driven disorders. As an instructor, I'm just excited about science as a whole! All it takes is one really good mentor to get someone interested in a career in STEM.
