Education

Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH
PhD, Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience, April, 2008
Dissertation: “The Integration of Higher Cognition and Internal State Across Development”
Advisors: Abigail A. Baird, George L. Wolford

University of Kansas, Lawrence, KS
BS, Cognitive Psychology, May, 2003

Research Interests

My research interests are diverse but focus on issues in developmental cognitive neuroscience and magnetic resonance imaging methods. Specifically, I am interested in how emotional information is integrated with higher cognitive processes and how this integration matures across adolescence and young adulthood. This form of information processing may be important for efficient cognition and effective decision making.
