Please provide a brief description of your research interests
I am interested in studying the processes of neurodegeneration that underlies common diseases of aging such as Alzheimer, Parkinson, and Huntington disease. In particular, I'm interested in assessing animal models of motor dysfunction. I also have an interest in genetic contributions to neurodegeneration and its resulting behavioral effects.
Are you looking for student research assistants for the upcoming semesters?
In what aspects are student research assistants involved in your lab?
Students who work in my lab take responsibility for all aspects of research from conceptual design of a study all the way through to data analysis.
What skills are you looking for in student research assistants?
Student researchers must be motivated and dependable. They must also be able to work independently. I value work ethic and reliability over all other qualities.
Is there anything else you would like to say?
I typically use a small number of students in the lab. I am always pleased to have students express an interest in work, but I can unfortunately accommodate only a small number of applicants.
