In my research, I explore developmental changes in reward processing and the influences of social feedback and social experience on the ways in which children, adolescents, and adults respond to potential risks and rewards. Another line of my research examines developmental and individual differences in neural responses to emotional facial expressions. I utlilize behavioral and neuroimaging methods to explore these questions. I obtained my Ph.D. from the Institute of Child Development at the University of Minnesota, and prior to that spent two years working in an autism lab at the National Institute of Mental Health.
