Curriculum Vitae

I am an undergraduate student majoring in Psychology with a minor in Public Health. I started working with Tony Riley in the Psychopharmacology Lab in the spring of 2017. Currently, I am working alongside Briana Hempel and researching the rewarding and reinforcing affects of cannabinoids. I will be working with Briana on a project looking specifically into sex differences and whether the rewarding and reinforcing properties of cannabinoids are directly impacted by the inhibition of pregnenolone.

My interests particularly lie in addiction beginning in adolescence and the difference in drug use and abuse between sexes. After completing my undergraduate degree, I plan to pursue a Ph.D. in behavioral neuroscience focusing on drugs of abuse and addiction.
