Research Interests

My research focuses on neuronal ion channels. I currently work with Dr. Kem, investigating a variety of nicotine and anabaseine analogs that activate alpha7 and other nicotinic acetylcholine receptors. Both electrophysiological and radioligand binding methods are used to assess structure-activity relationships and potential utility as drug candidates.
