SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS AND GOALS:

My area of interest is “substance dependence”, namely drug addiction or addiction to alcohol and studying the "addicted brain" would be exciting. Finding the mechanism behind substances dependence and designing drugs (through computer aided drug designing techniques) to treat them is my chief goal.
