I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Melbourne, before moving to the University of New South Wales to work on my PhD. After several years studying the role of the orexin system in appetitive motivation and addiction, I commenced a postdoc at Concordia University in Montreal, where I worked on the role of glutamate in processing appetitive cues. I am currently studying cocaine addiction at the Université de Montréal. I independently study author choice and academic publishing behaviour and founded a non-profit academic community publisher to provide free open access publishing for neuroscientists.
