Biography

I am an experimental pharmacologist and immunologist with extensive experience in translational research in areas of pediatric neuropsychiatric disorders, including habit formation, Tourette syndrome and autism. Our prior clinical studies have focused on the role of immunogenic mechanisms underlying these neuropsychiatric diseases. To address this question on mechanistic level, I joined Dr. Bamford's laboratory, where I focus on the synaptic, cellular, and molecular mechanisms of the plasticity of striatal interneurons and their role in regulation of cortico-striatal circuits.
