I am in the Pharmacology and Toxicology graduate group. I completed my undergraduate education at Tufts University in Massachusetts. As an undergraduate I was introduced to the field of pharmacology through my thesis project exploring the interaction between stress and ethanol abuse. I worked for two years as a technician in the Tufts-AstraZeneca Laboratory for Basic and Translational Neuroscience. My research involves the assessment of neuroprotective strategies against intoxication with organophosphates.
