Joel completed his BA at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2010, and subsequently worked as a research assistant studying alcohol seeking behavior in rodents under the mentorship of Dr. Donita Robinson.  He earned his PhD in Pharmaceutical Sciences in 2019 from The University of Texas at Austin where he investigated the effects of acute and chronic ethanol on synaptic transmission in the Insular Cortex under the mentorship of Dr. Richard Morrisett and Dr. Regina Mangieri.  Broadly speaking, Joel is interested in elucidating how brain regions and circuits of motivational significance change to underlie, at last in part, various psychiatric disease states.
