Elaine Robbins

Elaine Robbins received her bachelor’s degree in biochemistry from American University in 2012 and her PhD in analytical chemistry in 2019 at the University of Pittsburgh under the study of Dr. Adrian Michael. Her previous work involved studying the dynamics of dopamine release and uptake in the brain using fast scan cyclic voltammetry and studying cortical spreading depolarization in traumatic brain injury model animals and in patients with microdialysis.

Her current projects involve enhancing in vivo neurochemical sensing techniques and improving the tissue/device interface of microdialysis probes.
