Principal Investigator/Lab Director
My initial training was at the University of California, Berkeley where I studied cognitive science (BA) and the University of California, San Diego where I studied experimental psychology and (MA and PhD). I then held post-doctoral appointments at INSERM Cognitive Neuroimaging Unit with Stanislas Dehaene in France and the Educational Cognitive Neuroscience Lab with Bruce McCandliss (now at Stanford) in Vanderbilt University’s Peabody College. Our research uses functional MRI to explore the neural basis of numerical and mathematical abilities in children.

Lab Manager/Project Coordinator
Project: Longitudinal Analysis of Mathematical and Brain Development (LAMBDA)
Hi! My name is Ashley and I am the lab manager for the Educational Neuroscience lab, but a lot of my time and energy is dedicated to the LAMBDA project. Not only am I responsible for closely managing the 23 undergrads assigned to help with LAMBDA, but I also am in charge of scheduling ~400 families every year! I graduated from Miami University (in Ohio) in May 2019 with a B.A. in (cognitive) Psychology and a minor in Linguistics. I am currently taking a gap year (years, actually) before starting grad school for either developmental or cognitive psychology to study the development of language in kiddos! I love working with kids and this position has proven to be a perfect fit! My favorite part about managing the lab is all the wonderful people I get to talk to and do research with everyday. My favorite part about LAMBDA specifically is being able to interact with all the kids in our study, especially when I run the fMRI scans! In my free time, I love hiking and running, doing puzzles, and watching movies (my boyfriend is an avid movie collector!).
