I am Postdoctoral Fellow interested in the neurobiological underpinnings of emotion regulation. I work with with Dr. James Gross at Stanford University and Dr. Norman Farb at The University of Toronto. My research involves the development of theoretical models and the empirical testing of those models using behavioural and brain imaging (fMRI) methods. I focus on the functional specialization of different brain regions, as well as the way in which these regions work together as coordinated large-scale networks.
I completed my PhD with Dr. Kalina Christoff at The University of British Columbia.
