Research Interests

Advisor: Dr. Derek Wildman, Ph.D.

My research interests include understanding proximal and evolutionary explanations of how genetic and epigenetic factors interact to determine plastic responses to environmental stimuli. Specifically, I am researching the genetic and epigenetic determinants of PTSD risk and resilience, as well as the evolution of epigenetic regulatory potential.
