Research Description:

I am generally interested in applying network neuroscience methods to the study of affective disorders. My dissertation project is focused on characterizing and validating a resting-state functional network model of posttruamatic stress disorder in adult women with interpersonal violence exposure. I hope to use my training in the Neuroscience and Public Policy Program to work at the intersection of science and policy and translate my research into evidence-based policy interventions to protect and improve mental health outcomes for vulnerable populations.
