Research Interests

 

I am a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Minnesota. I am mentored by Dr. Jeffrey Wozniak.

 

My research focuses on the neurocognitive and environmental mechanisms underlying individual differences in self-control in children and adolescents. My current research comprises 2 interrelated areas of research:

  • The effects of early-life exposure to alcohol on self-control and its neural circuitry in children and adolescents
  • The effects of neurocognitive interventions                                (e.g., computerized cognitive training, tDCS) on self-control and    its neural circuitry in children and adolescents with fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD)

In addition to conducting research, I am gaining supervised clinical neuropsychology experience in the outpatient neuropsychology clinic of the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Minnesota (supervised by Dr. Jeffrey Wozniak), and in the Proof Alliance FASD clinic (supervised by Dr. Julia Conkel-Ziebell).
