CV

Research:
My research program is focused on understanding the cognitive, neural and computational mechanisms that support behavioral control and flexibility, and to identify how these processes are affected by exposure to stress, which is pervasive in daily life. Specifically, I aim to understand (1) how we flexibly respond to threats and rewards; (2) how we engage higher-order control to guide adaptive decision-making; and (3) how changes in our environmental or affective states shape these decisions. To achieve this, I have adopted a multidisciplinary approach that uses a range of methodological techniques, including psychophysiology, neuroendocrinology, neuroimaging, and computational modeling, as well as experimental paradigms informed by learning models and economic decision theory. My work is currently supported by an independent NIMH postdoctoral fellowship as well as a NARSAD Young Investigator Award.
