Research Interests

I am an educator and researcher with specialized training in pain, chronic disease, immunology, and pharmacology. My lab uses interdisciplinary tools, including pharmacological and genetic experimental animal models, to study the opioid and endocannabinoid systems and how they control pain, inflammation, and the stress response. My goal, as principal investigator and mentor of a diverse team of graduate and undergraduate students, is to develop interventions to improve pain management and reduce human suffering.
