I am a postdoctoral scholar in the Department of Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania, examining the role of memory in decision-making across adulthood. In general, I am interested in how people make decisions with consequences that unfold over time. How do individual differences and situational factors shape these intertemporal choices? To answer these questions, I take an interdisciplinary, “neuroeconomics” approach, combining experimental paradigms from psychology and behavioral economics with methodological techniques including neuroimaging, computational modeling, psychophysiology, and pharmacology.

I earned my Ph.D. in Psychology at New York University, and my B.A. in neurobiology at Harvard University.
