I received my B.A. in psychology from Haverford College in 1984 and my Ph.D from the University of Pennsylvania in experimental psychology in 1989.

In 1990 I began conducting research on learning processes involved in drug addiction and relapse following treatment at the University of Pennsylvania Treatment Research Center.
