Interest
My research interests include understanding how genes, epigenetic mechanisms, and environmental factors interact to initiate neurodevelopmental disorders. Valproic acid (VPA), an anticonvulsant and mood stabilizing drug, has been demonstrated to be strongly teratogenic. My aim is to examine the molecular and epigenetic mechanisms of prenatal VPA exposure in prairie voles that alter expression of genes implicated in the neurobiology of social affiliation and pair bonding.
