I received my BS in Cell Biology & Molecular Genetics from the University of Maryland in 2013. I then worked as a research coordinator at the University of Pennsylvania at The Center for Interdisciplinary Research on Nicotine Addiction. Currently, I study the development of the neural correlates of real-world risk-taking behaviors in the Child Development Lab. Specifically, I use ERP and time-frequency measures to study possible deficits in the performance monitoring system and how these deficits relate to real-world risk-taking behaviors such as substance use and violence.
