About My Research… 

My research lies at the intersection between serious mental illness and drug addiction. This is a chicken-or-egg question that has been difficult to answer. By combing behavioural, pharmacological and neuroimaging approaches, we test the causal underpinnings of these co-occurring disorders.

How Will Your Research Improve Life?

The problem this research addresses is the high prevalence of substance use in patients with serious mental illness, which is a significant health care burden. By understanding the neural underpinning a of these disorders, we can target these mechanisms for treatment development, which can help improve life for patients and their families.

Why Choose UofG for graduate studies?

The University of Guelph is a great place for graduate training because of the diversity of thought and expertise available in the faculty. Specifically, the strength in Neuroscience across departments will be extremely beneficial for prospective students.
