Research Interests

Opioid misuse and abuse

Research Summary

I am an up and coming doctoral student in the Neuroscience Interdisciplinary Program. My interests have long focused on work to curb the opioid epidemic. Through outreach volunteering beginning during my undergraduate degree at the University of Missouri – St Louis and lab work during my time at Washington University in St. Louis, I have a well-rounded understanding of the problems faced by individuals suffering from opioid use disorders and the mechanistic underpinnings of opioid and cannabinoid pharmacology via bench research. I focus my efforts on the investigation of opioid/cannabinoid interactions using cannabinoids as a viable strategy to help individuals cease their opioid use to facilitate an end to the opioid epidemic.
