I am a fifth-year graduate student in Dartmouth College's Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, and have just completed my Ph.D. in Cognitive Neuroscience. I am interested in the development of mathematics and reading skills, and what fMRI can tell us about how the brain changes with age and experience on these tasks. My dissertation examined the neural systems supporting our understanding of negative numbers, both in adults and children. My dissertation advisor is Dr. George Wolford, and my committee members are Dr. Michele Tine, Dr. Won Mok Shim, and Dr. Daniel Ansari (my external faculty member). Previously, I worked with Dr. Elise Temple during her time at Dartmouth and Dr. Donna Coch in my first year.
This summer, I will be moving to Northwestern University to begin a research associateship (postdoctoral position) with Dr. James Booth in the Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience Lab, where I will be focusing on examining developmental dyslexia using functional (and potentially structural) MRI.
Please take a look around to find out more about me, the research I do, and my papers and presentations. Thanks for stopping by!
