I am currently searching for scientist positions in the greater Boston area!
Please contact me for more information.
I am currently a T32 postdoctoral fellow in Dr. Ryan Logan’s laboratory at Boston University School of Medicine in the Department of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics. I earned my doctorate in neuroscience from Dr. Michael McDannald’s laboratory at Boston College in 2021 where I used a variety of techniques including in vivo electrophysiology and optogenetics to examine the nucleus accumbens core and its involvement in adaptive scaling of fear to various threat probabilities. At Boston University, my research focuses on the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying mood and addiction disorders. My postdoctoral work utilizes single cell transcriptomic and multiomic approaches in human postmortem brain tissue to identify molecular and cellular pathways associated with opioid use disorder. Outside of the laboratory, I enjoy running, board games, and being a cat mom to my two cats, Emmy and Basal Ganglia.
