Neuroimmunological modulation in Psychiatric disorders, Bioinformatics and Systems Biology, Urban Ecology

Bio

I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Biological Sciences and Psychology from Rutgers University-New Brunswick. As an undergraduate researcher, I performed physiological ecology field and lab studies on the Eastern Fence Lizard (Sceloporus undulatus). I performed research in Psychology on the early diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease in a Rat model using pharmacological means.

I received my Ph.D. from Cornell University-Weill Medical College in New York City where I performed research in Molecular Neurosciences in the Department of Pharmacology. I subsequently joined the Department of Neurology at Mount Sinai School of Medicine as a Postdoctoral fellow where I took part in Systems Biology, Bioinformatics and Viral Immunology research.

I collaborated at Mount Sinai in the Department of Psychiatry as an Adjunct Assistant Professor where I continued my studies on the Immune modulation of the Nervous system in Psychiatric diseases.

My research projects at City Tech involve collaborations between members of the Biology, Mechanical Engineering and Computer Engineering Technology. These studies focus on Urban Ecology and examine the interface of human populations and their effects on the local flora and fauna. This research particularly focuses on the invasive rodent pest species that are so abundant in our city.

My Courses

CHEM-1110 LAB

CHEM-1110 LAB

This laboratory course is a co-requisite for General Chemistry – 1110. One three hour laboratory meeting per week and a total of 15 meetings per semester.

HIST 1103 OER

HIST 1103 OER

This course is a chronological and thematic introduction to the history of Western interactions with the wider world from the late 1800s to the present, emphasizing the following events: the rise of nationalism in Europe and the race for empire in the late 19th century, the First World War, the interwar years, the Second World War, the Cold War, the post-Cold War world and the effects of globalization. It explores how the United State engaged with the Soviet Union via proxy wars and spheres of influence via third parties in Europe, Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East. It shows students the cultural, social and political background and implications of this important period in history.
