Bio/Research

I received my PhD in Neuroscience from the University of Calgary (Calgary, Alberta) in 2006 followed by a postdoctoral fellowship at the Baylor College of Medicine (Department of Neuroscience) (Houston, Texas). I joined the Department of Psychology at Laurier in 2008.

My research focuses on 2 aspects of recreational psychoactive drug use. 1) Trends in undergraduate student alcohol and drug use, relationships between alcohol and drug use and academic outcomes, the reasons underpinning recreational alcohol and drug use by students, and harmful outcomes associated with excessive alcohol and drug use. 2) Neurobiological and neuropharmacological mechanisms mediating the effects of recreational psychoactive drugs using animal models.
