PhD Student
I recently joined the lab in September 2016 to begin my PhD with Dr. Catherine Sebastian. I am interested in emotion regulation in adolescents, particularly in relation to the development of the neural underpinnings of reactive aggression and the individual differences in the ability to regulate frustration.
