I am currently employed as a lab manager in the Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience Lab at the University of British Columbia in the Department of Psychiatry. I am working under the supervision of Dr. Adele Diamond.
I am interested in how relationships during infancy affect the development of executive functions. My experience working with Chee Keong has been the driving force behind my work. Lately, I've also turned my focus towards learning about how toxic stress during the neonatal period can affect telomeric development and attrition over the lifespan.
