Dr. Tulloch earned a B.A. in Psychology at Hunter College and a Ph.D. in Biological Psychology at the City University of New York Graduate School. She completed a post-doctoral research fellowship in the Molecular Neuropsychiatry Branch of the National Institute on Drug Abuse at the National Institutes of Health studying molecular mechanisms of methamphetamine toxicity. Before joining the Morgan State faculty, she was an assistant professor of psychology at Stevenson University.

Dr. Tulloch's research utilizes human participants and animal models to study the developmental neurobiology of risky adult behaviors and cognitive aging. In the lab, she examines specific life experiences such as discrimination, violent victimization, and under-resourced environments during development. She measures the activity of inflammatory cytokine genes associated with such life experiences and the interactions between these variables for making predictions about young adult substance use and aging-related memory deficits.
