Our lab conducts research on emotional development and associated neurobiology. Our research focuses on the process of development itself and how early experiences impact emotional behavior and brain development. Students in the laboratory work on projects covering a wide range of topics including neurobiological correlates of early adversity, emotion regulation, face processing, and temperament. We are committed to bringing individuals with diverse backgrounds, experiences, and beliefs, onto the team.
Currently available projects are listed below. We will also consider previously submitted applications in the future when personnel needs change.
Please note that we are not currently able to accept additional students for summer research (including the Barnard Summer Research Institute).
To apply to work in our lab, please fill out the form located at the bottom of this page. At this time, we can only accept students who have valid Columbia affiliated UNIs.
