I graduated from Cornell University in Ithaca, NY in 2011 with a BS with honors in Human Development and a minor in Nutrition and Health. My initial research experiences in neurobiology utilized fMRI to study emotion regulation and effects of lifetime trauma.
My work in the Frohlich Lab focuses on understanding cortical network dynamics and ways to enhance these dynamics using non-invasive transcranial current stimulation. Experimental techniques I utilize include multichannel electrophysiology recordings in awake and anesthetized animals during rest and visual/auditory stimulation, transcranial current stimulation in awake and anesthetized animals, and transcranial current stimulation in humans with simultaneous EEG recordings.
