She comes to us following five years of postdoctoral training at the Penn State College of Medicine in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
Anne's doctoral research examined the neural substrates of appetitive instrumental learning and her postdoctoral research focused on the neural structures underlying the process of reward comparison; the devaluation of natural rewards induced by drugs of abuse. Anne is a strong advocate for undergraduate research and maintains her interests in neuroscience. She also enjoys reading and looking for finds at flea markets and antique shops.
