Estée is a doctoral student within the Neuroscience track of the Psychology program at Yale under the mentorship of Dr. BJ Casey.  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.  She completed her first year of graduate work at the Weill Cornell Graduate School in Neuroscience.  Her interests explore the neural circuitry underlying how emotional contexts and affect regulation impact cognition and behavior, specifically looking at how outgroup interactions affect impulsivity under sustained threat.  When not in lab, Estée enjoys baking elaborate baked goods!
