    BioI'm a Postdoctoral Fellow in Psychology at Stanford in Dr. Anthony Wagner's lab and the grateful recipient of an extramural Postdoctoral NRSA F32 from NIA/NIH.

    I’m really interested in human memory, particularly what we call retrieval. My research addresses the following questions using a combination of behavioral, eyetracking (pupillometry), and neural (EEG, fMRI, concurrent EEG-fMRI, TMS) methods.

    1) What are the mechanisms of memory retrieval?
    2) What functions does retrieval serve beyond 'simple remembering'?
    3) How do fluctuations in attention and goal-state orientations modulate retrieval?
    4) How does aging affect mechanisms, functions, and modulations of retrieval?

    My work has been published in PNAS, Psychological Science, Journal of Neuroscience, Cerebral Cortex, JEP:General, JEP:LMC, Psychology and Aging, and other peer-reviewed journals. I received a PhD in Psychology at Harvard in Dr. Dan Schacter's lab in 2017 where I was extramurally funded by the Beinecke Scholarship and Sackler Psychobiology Program, and a BA in Psychology and History from Middlebury College in 2011.

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy doctoral research primarily explored neurometric encoding and decoding based on the brain's in-vivo functional connectivity. Most of my projects centered around developing and implementing novel multivariate functional connectivity approaches for fcMRI research. I applied these techniques to two behavioral genetics studies of cognitive processes, MR pulse sequence development and implementation, as well as the development of psychiatric diagnostic tools for schizophrenia, Parkinson's and substance abuse. The post-doctoral research that I am now conducting extends this work, in that I am currently developing multivariate models that add population genetics via extended pedigrees, and structural connectivity to the neuropsychological and functional connectivity parameters that I had previously been assessing. The overarching goal is to be able to use this entire complement of data to understanding the genetic and neurobiological substrates of the functioning and dysfunction of higher-order cognitive processes. By advancing our understanding the interaction and distribution of cognitive and neurobiological functionality, this work should inform the development of both individualized medicine strategies and epidemiological models of psychopathology.
