Research Summary

The intersection between the brain and behavior is something that has interested me throughout my educational and professional development. The overarching goal of my research is to narrow the gap in our understanding of the effect of reproductive hormones and substance use on the psychophysiology of women throughout their reproductive years. My current research focuses on the the development of novel treatments for perinatal substance use that lead to sustained abstinence beyond the perinatal period.
