Boundaries of Anxiety and Depression Laboratory
Department of Psychology, University of Pennsylvania
Postdoctoral Research Fellowship, Psychophysiology of Anxiety and Depression
Work jointly with Drs. Ayelet Ruscio (PI) and Adrian Raine (Co-PI) to investigate the physiological bases of risk mechanisms for anxiety and depression, focusing on disruptions in cognition and emotion that are hypothesized to contribute to generalized anxiety disorder, major depressive disorder, or their comorbidity.

One-year position with the possibility of second-year renewal, depending on funding. Start date: June 1, 2016.
