I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Centre for Social and Affective Neuroscience where I work with Leah Mayo in the Mayo Affective Neuroscience (MAN) Lab. I completed my PhD in Clinical Psychology at Queen´s University in Kingston, Canada and my pre-doctoral psychology residency at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre in Ottawa, Canada. I am interested in understanding the role of dysregulated stress and emotion processes in the etiology of mood, anxiety, and trauma-related disorders. My research focuses on characterizing the impacts of stress, trauma, and other risk factors on hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis functioning. At CSAN, I will be learning psychophysiology methods for studying affective processes (e.g., facial EMG) as well as studying how the endocannabinoid system interacts with the HPA axis to regulate stress and emotion processes.
