I received my B.A. in Psychology from Colby College in Waterville, ME in 2004 and completed my Ph.D. in Social Psychology from Northeastern University in 2009. Broadly, I am interested in how social threats impact behavior, cognition, and physiology. Past work of mine has examined the role of motivation in explaining how social threats impact performance outcomes. My current research in the HPL seeks to explain why adolescents exhibit increased risk taking in threatening situations, whereas adults exhibit less risk behavior in such situations. More specifically, this work examines the relationships between adolescents' risk behavior, physiological reactivity, and executive functioning.
