Arya was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Soma Lab (2017-2018). Arya examined local synthesis of estradiol and insulin within the brain and whether the interaction between these two neural signals is important in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease. Arya also worked with Prof. Angela Devlin and examined how second-generation antipsychotics lead to obesity and Type 2 diabetes and was supported by a Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research Postdoctoral Fellowship.

Arya is currently a Medical Science Liaison at Teva Pharmaceutical Industries.
