Research Interests:

Broadly, my research examines the role of executive function in subserving interpersonal dispositions, successes, and failures, using a multimethod approach that combines neuropsychological assessment, neuroimaging, and self/informant-reports. Additionally, my research also explores various clinical applications of functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS).
