I’m interested in the neural circuitry underlying the "social brain." I aim to combine brain measures and behavioral assays in order to characterize antecedents of high-level social cognition in infants and young children.
I'm currently a doctoral candidate in developmental psychology in the Institute of Child Development at the University of Minnesota. I work under the mentorship of Dr. Jed Elison, in collaboration with the Infant Brain Imaging Study, the Center for Magnetic Resonance Research, and the Center for Neurobehavioral Development. My current work focuses on social-cognitive and brain development in typically-developing infants, infants at an increased risk of autism, and infants born preterm.
