My research interests focus on understanding the dynamic interrelationships between cognitive abilities, neural processing, and behaviors across development, particularly during childhood and adolescence. During graduate school, I used electroencephalography and event-related potentials to study attention and executive functioning in typically-developing children. Following graduation, I spent one year as a post-doctoral research fellow at Boys Town National Research Hospital studying psychopathology in the adolescent brain via functional magnetic resonance imaging. Now in Dr. Wilson’s Lab, I am learning how to use magnetoencephalography to examine neurocognitive development from childhood on through adolescence in a large-scale, longitudinal study.
