"My general research interests include the development and evaluation of methods for measuring the behavioral effects of drugs in laboratory animals including reinforcement, conditioned drug effects, drug tolerance and sensitization. A related line of research examines behavioral correlates of alcohol preference in animal models of genetically-transmitted propensities to consume high or low amounts of alcohol."
