Position title: Ph.D. Candidate
Advisor: Ryan Herringa
My research looks to improve our understanding of how brain circuits develop during childhood and adolescence, as well as how exposure to violence and threat-related adversity influences their maturation. I focus on characterizing changes in brain network organization across development, understanding how development adapts to environments prone to violence and interpersonal threat, and evaluating the clinical utility of brain network development in making predictions for diagnosis and treatment of mental illness. My work makes extensive use of structural and functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), network/graph theory, machine learning, and other data science techniques.
