Jeffrey, who graduated from Northeastern University in 2014 with a B.S. in Behavioral Neuroscience, joined the Graybiel lab in October 2014 as a data analyst interested in uncovering significant findings in primate and rodent neurophysiological data. Before joining the Graybiel lab, Jeffrey worked as a research student under Dr. Mark Andermann of Harvard Medical School where he designed and wrote a protocol for a 16 input, coupled tetrode microdrive array implant for neuronal recordings in awake, freely moving mice. He also developed an appetitive/aversive experiment that observed the effects of injected ghrelin on hunger modulation in freely moving mice performing a visual cue-based behavioral task.
When not in the lab, Jeffrey enjoys drumming and listening to music, and playing competitive League of Legends. He also enjoys programming, weightlifting, watching eSports (and soccer every four years), and driving home to New Jersey to see his chocolate miniature dachshund.
