In 2011 I graduated from The University of Texas at Austin with a B.S. in Biology:Neurobiology. I then entered the Neurobiology Curriculum in the fall of 2012 where I joined the Besheer laboratory in the Bowles Center for Alcohol Studies.
All drugs of abuse have unique interoceptive/subjective effects. These internal cues can guide and influence drug taking behavior. My research interests are to understand the neurobiology underlying the interoceptive effects of alcohol.
