Hi! I'm Tess (she/her), a post doc in the DCN lab. Prior to moving to New York, I completed my PhD at the University of Toronto with Drs. Amy Finn and Meg Schlichting. Broadly, I am interested in understanding how people, especially children, sift through complex environments to turn the information present around them into memory representations they can later use. My research uses behavioral methodologies, eye-tracking, and fMRI to answer questions about how experience, brain development, and attention shape learning across childhood. You can view my personal website here. In my free time I like to cook and spend time outside... either running, backpacking, skiing, or canoeing!
