About Me

After training in biology and immunology, I have now focused my interest on how the brain changes in response to external and internal stimuli.  In particular, I am intrigued by how memories are formed, stored and elaborated.  Memory is a fundamental biological function and a critical component of our identity. As such, it involves our brain, mind and psyche. I am interested in exploring the biological mechanisms of memory and their integration into complex behavioral manifestations. I am also interested in applying this knowledge in order to understand how memory becomes an integral part of pathologies such as addiction and trauma.
