Shannon will be starting in Fall 2019 as a 1st year graduate student in the doctoral program in clinical psychology at the University of Maryland. She will be working in the Affective and Translational Neuroscience Laboratory (ATNL) with Dr. Alex Shackman. Her current research interests include investigating the neural underpinnings of affective processing during both typical and atypical developmental trajectories, and attempting to understand how various neural mechanisms influence risk for psychopathology. She is also interested in how individual differences in emotion regulation and early life stress exposure impact risk or resilience for mood and anxiety symptomatology.
