Research Interests
Broadly, I am interested in investigating the neurobiological mechanisms that underlie stress-reactivity in humans. I aim to apply this knowledge to inform our understanding of the etiology of addiction, particularly stress-induced relapse. To that end, I have employed a variety of laboratory based psychophysiological techniques ranging from event-related potentials to peripheral measures such as the eye blink startle response as well as complementary self-report ecological momentary assessment. My program of translational research aims to bridge basic science with clinical research to utilize innovative experimental medicine approaches that incorporates laboratory psychophysiology, psychopharmacology and clinical trials methodologies. Current research projects focus on screening the potential utility of noradrenergic alpha1 antagonists (e.g., prazosin, doxazosin) to treat stress-related relapse in alcohol and other substance use disorders.

Current Projects
Repurposing alpha1 noradrenergic antagonists for alcoholism treatment (F31, Principal Investigator)

Randomized controlled trial targeting noradrenergic stress mechanisms in alcoholism with doxazosin (R01, Significant Contributor)
