Research Interests: 

I am a second-year graduate student in the Impulsivity Neuroscience Lab. Broadly, my research interest is in neurocognitive mechanisms underlying impulsivity and risk-taking behaviors (e.g., substance use, excessive eating, etc). Additionally, I am interested in translating animal model of individual differences in reward cue responsivity to research in human behaviors. 

For my master's thesis, I am examining neural correlates of negative urgency (i.e., a tendency to act rashly under extreme negative emotions) between tobacco users and non-tobacco users using resting-state fMRI data.
