Current Staff


I am a research assistant with my current project focusing on the functional connectivity of the amygdala in both ADHD and typically developing populations. I graduated from Rutgers University with a B.S. in chemistry and completed a post-baccalaureate program through Portland State University's School of Community Health . Community outreach is a passion of mine and another flourishing component of my involvement with the Fair Lab. In the near future, I plan to pursue a PhD in behavioral neuroscience.


I am a RA in the Fair lab, where my current projects are focused on functional connectivity of the aging adolescent & mature adult brain in ADHD and typically developing populations.  I use MatLab, FSL, FreeSurfer, Fidle & Caret, to analyze the functional and structural images in my research. I graduated from Penn State, where I studied General Science with a focus on medical imaging. I'm currently taking prerequisites for my future application to nursing school.

I have been a Research Assistant 2 in the Fair Lab since April, 2013. My role in the lab has been two-fold: developing new software to simplify image processing and supporting the wide variety of software in use now. I completed my BS in Electrical Engineering at the University of Portland, Oregon, in 2006. I developed my love for research in two different OHSU departments (Biomedical Engineering ’06-‘09 and the Advanced Imaging Research Center ’09-‘12) prior to settling down in the Fair Lab.


I am Research Associate in the Fair lab where my current project is adding high-density (256 channel) EEG source localization methods to the lab's research methodologies.  I hold BS degrees in Biology and Engineering & Applied Science, and a PhD in Engineering Science (Bioinformation Systems), all from Caltech. I plan to continue refining our EEG toolbox including our ability to record EEG and fMRI simultaneously, and lead the effort to apply these tools to further our understanding of ASD and ADHD.


I am a Project Coordinator in the Fair Lab and I am responsible for coordinating the Autism and Adult ADHD studies. I completed my Ph.D. in Psychology at the University of Leipzig, Germany and the Max-Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences, Leipzig. I also graduated from the Catholic University of Eichstaett-Ingolstadt, Germany, where I studied Psychology.


I am a research assistant and study coordinator who completes neuropsychological testing visits and MRI scans for the Autism and ADHD studies.  My current research interest is exploring the familial transmission and co-occurrence of Autism and ADHD.  My undergraduate work was in Psychology and Art at the University of Missouri.  I plan to pursue a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and would like to study neurodevelopmental disorders in children and adolescents.


I am a Senior Research Associate and licensed Psychologist in the Fair Lab. I do cognitive and neuropsychological testing as well as specialized testing for the diagnosis of autism (ADOS-2) with children. I also do assessment for a CSLU study following infants and toddlers who are siblings of children with autism. Previously I worked on a study of expressive and receptive prosody in children with a diagnosis of autism and/or developmental language disorder. I completed a Ph.D. in Psychology at Purdue University (Developmental emphasis), a Postdoctoral Fellowship in Applied Developmental Psychology at Wayne State University, and a clinical re-specialization at Pacific University
