Dr. Ruby has 15 years of research experience investigating alcohol's effects on circadian (daily) rhythms. Her lab is currently focused on characterizing the chronobiological impacts of adolescent exposure to alcohol and other addictive substances, such as caffeine, nicotine, and opioids in rodent models, and exploring evolutionary aspects of addiction-related behavior and circadian timing in invertebrates.
