I obtained a Ph.D. in cognitive psychology and neuroscience from the joint Carnegie Mellon University and Pittsburgh University Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition (CNBC) program. It was here that I first did work on neuroplasticity and cognitive control. For a number of years I was a Lecturer/Assistant Professor in the Experimental Psychology Department at the University of Cambridge, England. It was here that I first developed a research interest in cognitive health, resilience and performance. I now work independently and in collaboration with colleagues interested in cognitive interventions.
