Curriculum Vitae


I joined Boston College as an Assistant Professor of Psychology in 2016. I completed my Ph.D. in Psychology & Neuroscience at Duke University, where I was a student in the interdisciplinary cognitive neuroscience training program. After then, I trained as a postdoctoral scholar at the Center for Neuroscience at the University of California, Davis. My research has been funded by the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation and the National Institute of Mental Health, including the Pathway to Independence Award (K99/R00). At Boston College, I teach courses related to cognitive neuroscience, research methods, and everyone’s favorite brain structure, the hippocampus.

Outside of the lab, I enjoy hiking and camping, adventures in baking, and Boston summers.
