I am a 2nd year graduate student in the Cognition and Neural Systems Psychology Ph.D. Program. I received my B.A. in Television, Film, and Media Studies (2010), followed by a M.A. in Psychology (2013) from California State University, Los Angeles. My previous work investigated the cognitive and behavioral effects of methamphetamine on adolescent rodents with Dr. Alicia Izquierdo. Currently, I am working with Dr. Stephen Cowen in the Decision Making and Learning Lab. My research interests targets the neural connectivity between the striatum and the anterior cingulate cortex, and their role in effortful decision-making.
