My research focuses on how different affective and motivational states influence neural systems underlying memory encoding. Further, I am interested in how engagement of these systems shape how representations of the environment are stored in long-term memory. My research spans across a variety of affective and motivational states including threat, reward, and novelty.
Prior to UPMC, I received my Ph.D. in Neurobiology from Duke University and completed a post-doctoral fellowship at New York University.
