Research and Practice Interests


The focus of my laboratory’s research is to understand how traumatic brain injury (TBI) alters neuronal signaling and behavior that is associated with neuropsychiatric disorders including depression and social withdrawal. Chronic changes in psychosocial states, mood and cognition often accompany acute TBI.  TBI results in neuroinflammation and molecular signaling alterations within the brain that have been linked to neuropsychiatric disorders, although the precise mechanisms by which this occurs are still poorly understood. A greater understanding of the molecular underpinnings by which TBI results in neuroinflammation and changes in neural signaling that result in behavioral changes will lead to the identification of drug targets and better medical treatments for those who suffer from TBI.
