Dr. Harriott has clinical research interests centered on chronic migraine pain, associations between migraine and stroke, and migraine and preeclampsia. Her basic science research focuses on discovering sex and hormonal influences on migraine pain and its comorbidities using optogenetic approaches to noninvasively generate cortical spreading depression as a rodent model of migraine aura.
She is a part of the TRANSCENDS (Training in Research for Academic Neurologists to Sustain Careers and Enhance the Numbers of Diverse Scholars) Program and is a BIRCWH (Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women’s Health) Scholar. She hopes to impact the lives of women suffering from migraine attacks and their associated comorbid conditions including stroke, preeclampsia and mental illness.
