Personal profile

Research interests

Research Expertise:
Pharmacology | Neuroscience | Biochemistry

I am interested in developing new medications for neuropsychiatric disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease, schizophrenia, ADHD, pain, anxiety, and a particular interest in drug addiction. My lab works closely with medicinal chemists to design and test new drug-like molecules, combining molecular and behavioral pharmacology methods to evaluate the preclinical potential of new compounds designed to target the dopamine D4 receptor, the µ opioid receptor, and the trace amine-associated receptor 1, among others.
