I work on several studies at the Minneapolis VA Medical Center investigating mild traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder, and resiliency in veterans and service members. My primary responsibilities are MRI data acquisition, processing, and analysis. In my undergrad I led a cognitive neuroscience research lab and interned in case management at the MN Brain Injury Alliance.
