My research over the past 5 years has focused on postmortem studies of human brain in PTSD and related complex behavioral disorders. I’m a molecular neuroscientist interested in functional genomics and big data approaches to understanding molecular signatures of neuropsychiatric disease. I live on a horse farm in southwest Connecticut with my wife and two kids.
My present research emphasizes identifying convergence in the biological pathways in post-traumatic stress disorder and depression using animal models along with pharmacological, and molecular psychiatry techniques to advance this study. Outside of the lab, I enjoy spending time with my two girls and watching sports, especially cricket and soccer.
As a research associate I am a jack-of-all-trades, but most of the projects I have been involved with investigate Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) and Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). I perform molecular and behavioral studies and am learning more about genomics. When I have free time I like to hike, snowboard, rock climb, play guitar, and the list goes on.
I want to understand the pathogenesis of psychiatric diseases using multiple neuroscience approaches. My current focus is -omics data analysis. Outside the lab, I'm a traveler and a binge-watcher.
