I received my B.A. in Psychology from Binghamton University in 2013, and am now a 5th year PhD student here at Northeastern. My earlier work in the lab focused on the types of emotional situations people of different ages chose to engage with, and how those situations made them feel. The current studies making up my dissertation are examining how arousal and attentional changes in aging are related to attention to emotional content in younger and older adults. I am particularly interested in whether older adults demonstrate typical age-related positivity effects in attention (a tendency to look more positively/less negatively) at varying levels of stimulus arousal, and whether the particular attentional process required to do so plays a role.
