    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Psychology

    BioI'm a Postdoctoral Fellow in Psychology at Stanford with Anthony Wagner and funded by an extramural NRSA F32 from NIA/NIH. I received a PhD in Psychology at Harvard with Dan Schacter 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.

    My work focuses on human memory, particularly what we call retrieval, and aims to answer the following questions using a combination of behavioral, eyetracking (pupillometry), and neural (EEG, fMRI, concurrent EEG-fMRI, TMS) methods:

    1) What mechanisms subserve memory retrieval?
    2) How does retrieval contribute to functions beyond 'simple remembering', such as prospection and creativity?
    3) How do trial-level changes in attention and goal-state orienting modulate retrieval?
    4) How do trait-level differences in media multitasking and sustained attention relate to retrieval?
    5) How does aging affect mechanisms, functions, and modulations of retrieval?

    Pardis Miri

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Psychology

    BioPardis Miri, PhD, recently received her doctorate in the area of human computer interaction from University of California Santa Cruz. As a PhD student, she spent the last 3 years of her training at Stanford University under the supervision of Dr. Marzullo, Dr. Gross, and Dr. Isbister. For her dissertation, she took a multidisciplinary approach in using technology for affect regulation. More specifically, she explored the placement and pattern, and personalization of a vibrotactile breathing pacer system that she developed during her graduate studies. Her work was funded by the National Science Foundation and Intel labs. Prior to being a Ph.D. student, Miri earned her Master’s degree in computer science from the University of California San Diego in the area of Systems and Networking. She is currently a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University conducting research in using vibrotactile technology to aid affect regulation in neurotypical and neurodiverse populations.

    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.
