My research is concerned with the neurobiological mechanisms underlying pathological behaviours, with a focus on alcohol addiction. I use animal models of alcohol addiction that capture the negative consequences of excessive drug use: a model of context-induced relapse after punishment imposed abstinence, and a model that identifies a sub-population of animals that are resistant to punishment of alcohol use. My research aim is to describe the neural circuitry that is responsible for these behavioural phenotypes. To do this, I combine animal behaviour with neuroscience techniques including Fos immunohistochemistry, retrograde tracing, chemogenetics and optogenetics, and calcium imaging.

Main research interests:

Behavioral neuroscience, neuroanatomy, addiction, relapse, alcohol.
