Project 3


I am a graduate student in the Pharmacology and Toxicology Graduate Group here at UC Davis. Prior to attending graduate school, I spent 8 years in the US Navy where I realized that more research was needed on how prescription drugs or chemical exposure can alter the behavior of humans. I returned to university in 2013 to study the biology and psychology of the brain at Washington State University, where I performed research developing rodent behavioral models for preclinical pain studies. I came to UC Davis and joined the Lein Lab in 2016 to continue learning about how drug or chemical exposure can affect the brain to alter behavior or produce neuropathology.
