Research Interests

I am a second year graduate student in the behavioral neuroscience program within the psychology department. My research interests include affective neuroscience, psychoneuroimmunology, psychophysiology and behavioral endocrinology. Specifically, I am interested in multilevel research that recognizes the reciprocal interactions of neurobehavioral, neuroendocrine, autonomic and immune systems. My current research focuses on social isolation and its effects on inflammation, neuroendocrine and autonomic control in both humans and animal models.
