I am a graduate student in Dr. Alex Shackman's Affective and Translational Neuroscience Laboratory. I graduated from the University of Maryland in Spring of 2019 with a dual degree in Physiology & Neurobiology and Food Science, with a minor in Italian language. During this time, I was a research assistant in Dr. Shackman's lab, and took an active part in fMRI data collection and processing. In my graduate studies, I hope to explore the underlying neural circuitry of fear and anxiety in the context of mood disorders and substance use disorders.
