B.S. & B.A., Northern Illinois University 2014

My research interests include neurotoxicology, developmental exposures, and behavioral outcomes in both incidents of human exposure and animal models of human exposures.

In the Eubig Lab, I studied the effects of developmental exposure to drugs and environmental toxicants on adult behavior in rodents. I have collaborated with the EPA to study the effects of perinatal sub-clinical hypothyroidism on offspring in the novel object recognition task. I also worked on a collaboration with the Cincinnati Children's Hospital studying the effects of prenatal exposure to methamphetamine on performance in the 5-choice serial reaction time task.

I will be joining the Schantz Lab to work on the IKIDS project in Spring 2018.
