Eric is a current sophomore, studying Psychology and Clinical Science. He has been in the lab since his sophomore year. He is interested in evaluating animal models of early-life stress (i.e., Limited Bedding; Maternal Deprivation) and aberrations to animal behavior as a consequence of these manipulations. He is also interested in the clinical translatability of these models to psychological disorders such as schizophrenia, bipolar disoder, and anxiety. Eric plans to graduate in 2020 with the intention of applying to Graduate School.

Eric worked as a research assistant in the Department of Biology through the Groups Scholars STEM Initative in 2016. He also acts as a mentor in the HOPE Mentoring program, working to reduce recidivism rates in juvenile centers.

When not in the lab, Eric enjoys reading and watching college sports.
