Shaun Khoo, B.A., B.Sc. (Hons), PhD
I began studying the orexin neuropeptide system at Melbourne’s Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health. During my PhD at UNSW, Sydney, I continued working on the orexin system and expanded my scope to include both nicotine and palatable food. Expanding my behavioural repertoire, I studied appetitive Pavlovian models at Concordia University on a Horizon Postdoctoral Fellowship. I now work on corticostriatal circuits in the Samaha laboratory at the University of Montreal.
Throughout my career, I have worked on various projects outside of the lab. During my PhD, I led the development and launch of a peer mentoring programme for psychology Honours students at UNSW. I have also extended my commitment to reproducible research and open access beyond open data and self-archiving my papers to founding Episteme Health Inc., an association dedicated to providing fee-free open access publishing for medical research.
