Research Interests

My research focuses on the neurobiology of addiction. I utilize electrophysiological, neurochemical, imaging and behavioral approaches to study neuroadaptations in brain substrates during alcohol and nicotine dependence and co-dependence. My research has been funded by grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for the past thirty years. My lab is currently staffed by a postdoctoral fellow, three graduate students, and 68 undergraduate students. I am grateful for internal support from BYU as well as the amazing students under my purview.
