    Biography

    ​My past research focused on studying genetic factors that influenced the acquisition of anxiety phenotypes.  My current research focus on how parent-offspring interactions influence the epigenome, and how this subsequently implicates the aquisition of neuropathological disorders.  Moreover, my interests lie in looking at pharmacological or behavioral interventions.
