Gregory completed a BA at the University of Michigan (after transferring from UM Flint), PhD at Stanford, post-doc at Vanderbilt, and was an Assistant Professor at Yale from 2013 to 2017 before moving to Duke.
Kendra received her PhD from The Catholic University of America with James and Darlene Howard in 2014. She investigates how various aspects of learning and decision-making change as people age. Prior to graduate school, she served as a science teacher at Frick Middle School in Oakland, California and as a teacher and department chair at KIPP DC: KEY Academy in Washington, DC.
Linh received a PhD in Neuroscience at UC Berkeley where she worked primarily with Bill Jagust. She is currently a post-doctoral fellow at Vanderbilt University in the Zald Affective Neuroscience lab. She collaborates heavily with our lab on several studies examining links between individual differences in the dopamine system (using PET imaging) and functional neural activity (using fMRI).
Chris received his PhD in Neurobiology from UNC Chapel Hill, where he worked with Charlotte Boettiger. He is currently a post-doctoral fellow at Vanderbilt University in the Zald Lab at Vanderbilt and collaborates with our lab on PET imaging studies of the dopamine system.
Jaime will join the lab as a PhD student at Duke in 2017 supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. He was an undergraduate at USC, research assistant at Vanderbilt, and lab manager at UCLA. He is interested in decision neuroscience and how neuroscience can inform public policy and law.
Eric will join the lab as a PhD student at Duke in 2017 supported by a Dean's Graduate Fellowship. He was an undergraduate at Harvard. He is interested in memory and decision making across the life span especially as it relates to health behavior.
Thomas is a graduate student at Yale working primarily with Marvin Chun. He is collaborating with our lab on several projects using multivariate fMRI approaches to better understand individual differences in value representations.
Teresa completed her masters thesis in our lab as a scholar of the German National Academic Foundation. As a PhD student at RWTH Aachen University, she continues to collaborate on projects related to neuromodulation and decision making across the life span.
Jenny is a full-time research assistant and lab manager. She graduated from Brandeis University in 2015 with degrees in neuroscience and psychology. She's interested in understanding how dopaminergic modulation changes with age. She will be a PhD student at WashU in Fall 2017.
Mikella will be a lab manager and project coordinator starting summer 2017. She will receive her BA in Psychology from Duke University in 2017. She is interested in how memory changes with age and the development of clinical interventions.
Galen will be a lab manager and project coordinator starting in summer 2017. He was in the lab as an undergraduate at Yale (BA in Psychology 2017). He is interested in the neurobiology of the regulation of craving as it relates to psychiatric disorders.
Natalia (Duke '19) is studying Neuroscience, with minors in Computer Science and Cultural Anthropology. She is interested in how motivation influences cognition, as well as the ethical implications of neuroscience.
Lucy (Duke '20) is planning to study biology or neurobiology. She is interested in behavioral science approaches to marketing, infectious disease prevention and treatment, and forensic pathology.
James (Duke '20) is planning to major in Biology or Chemistry, with a certificate in Decision Sciences. He is interested in how the mechanisms of motivation and decision making can be applied to improve our efficiency, well-being, and health.
Leah received her bachelor's in psychological science and counseling from Austin Peay State University in 2015. She is currently a project coordinator on a collaborative study between our lab and the Zald Affective Neuroscience Lab at Vanderbilt. She is located in Nashville.
Scott majored in psychology at Lake Superior State University and received his MA in experimental psychology from Western Kentucky University. His research interests include self-regulation and decision making in health and exercise psychology. He is a post-bacc project coordinator on a collaborative study between our lab and the Zald Affective Neuroscience Lab at Vanderbilt. He is located in Nashville.
