Eric is a second-year graduate student working toward Ph.D.s in Clinical Science and Neuroscience. He graduated in 2020 from Indiana University with a BS in Psychology and Clinical Psychological Science.
Eric’s research leverages multiple units of analysis, including neuroendocrinological (cortisol, alpha-amylase, gonadal hormones), psychophysiological (ECG), and neuroimaging (fMRI), to study the relationships between early life adversity and dimensional psychopathology, with a particular focus on the influence of biological sex in these phenomena. His current research areas include:
1. Stress responsivity in frequent cannabis users
2. The effects of early life adversity on substance use behaviors and distress tolerance
3. Multifinality in exposure to early life adversity
During his time at IU, Eric has been supported by the following grants and awards:
· National Institutes of Health (NIH) T32 Clinical Translational Science Training Fellowship
· Rebec Family Neuroscience Fellowship
· IU Program in Neuroscience Fellowship
When not in the lab, Eric enjoys drinking coffee, following baseball, and hanging out with his pup Ares!
