I am an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh in the Laboratory of Neurocognitive Development. My research focuses on how engagement of neuromodulatory systems, particularly the mesolimbic dopamine system, influence memory and memory-guided behavior. Further, I am interested in how this system develops in healthy adolescents and psychopathology. I investigate these systems in a variety of affective and motivational states including threat, reward, and novelty.
Prior to Pittsburgh, I received my Ph.D. in Neurobiology from Duke University and completed a post-doctoral fellowship at New York University.
