I am interested in the study of long-term memory consolidation. I am currently using EEG (non-invasive recordings of brain waves from the scalp) to identify neural signals that correspond to particular learning and memory processes. my dissertation work was focused on exploring questions such as:
Ph.D. Northwestern University,
Neuroscience, Cognitive Science Specialization; 2012
B.A. Syracuse University,
Psychology and Women's Studies, Minor: Religion; magna cum laude, 2006
Chiao, J.Y., Harada, T., Oby, E.R., Li, Z., Parrish, T.B., & Bridge, D.J. (2009). Neural representations of social status hierarchy in human inferior parietal cortex. Neuropsychologia, 47(2), 354-63.
When I'm not busy researching the brain, you can probably find me working on one of my other hobbies. I am an aspiring yogi, beer connoisseur & nano-brewmaster, and vinyl record collector.
