Lab Research Technician, Chemistry Department
Kristen assists in-vivo research investigating sub-second fluctuations in dopamine concentrations. Her research interests include exploring brain circuitry as well as changes in behavior due to chemical influences.
Lab Supervisor in Leslie Sombers lab, Department of Chemistry
Christie assists in-vivo research investigating real-time fluctuations of mesolimbic dopamine (DA). Current projects include ventral tegmental area mu opioid receptor manipulations to evaluate aspects of reward/aversion, in addition to measuring DA in the ventral striatum utilizing electrochemical detection.
Her research interest is in development of male-only strains of Drosophila suzukii a serious best of blueberry, strawberry, cherry and other soft-skinned fruit.
