During my graduate studies, I collaborated with Dr. Laszlo Zaborszky at the Centre of Molecular and Behavioural Neuroscience, Rutgers University, Newark, NJ, where I studied the anatomy of the basal forebrain. In 2007, I became a postdoctoral research associate in the laboratory of Dr. Sabrina Diano at Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut, USA, at the Department of Obstetrics, Gynaecology & Reproductive Sciences. .
