Estée is a doctoral student within the Neuroscience track of the Psychology program at Yale working with Dr. BJ Casey and Dr. Jennifer Richeson.  She received her BA in Neuroscience and Behavior from Wesleyan University in 2013, and went on to work and learn neuroimaging techniques in the Dystonia and Motor Control Lab at the Mount Sinai Medical Center under the mentorship of Dr. Kristina Simonyan.  Her interests explore the neural circuitry underlying how emotional contexts impact behavior during intergroup interactions.  Specifically, she has been focusing on how threat impacts cognitive control during interracial encounters. When not in lab, Estée enjoys spending as much time as possible with Cody, the lab mascot, and making elaborate baked goods!
