I completed my doctoral degree in Experimental Psychology, Linguistics and Cognitive Neuroscience (curriculum: Mind, Brain, and Behavior) in 2018. My predoctoral work investigated the face processing biases in infancy and childhood using neural (i.e., electroencephalography) and behavioral (i.e., eye-tracking, visual preference) measures. I joined Dr. Richards’ Infant Development laboratory for my postdoctoral training, and implemented EEG source analysis method to investigate the development of face processing and attention in infancy. My current work utilizes EEG, source analysis, and white matter tractography to examine the development of structural and functional relationships in the processing of faces.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
