During my time as an undergraduate student I worked in the laboratory of Dr. Kristy Townsend investigating the role of the peripheral nervous system in energy balance. We were interested in determining brain-adipose communication mechanisms and how they related to the maintenance of metabolic homeostasis. I am currently continuing my work in this area while developing my dissertation focus.
