Biography

Roisin is a graduate student in the Child Brain Development lab and a PAMT pre-doctoral trainee at Penn State. She is interested in how biological factors (genetic, physiological, neurological) interact with environmental factors (particularly early life stress) to influence decision-making and behavior later in development. She is also interested in investigating how individual differences in reward processing, cost estimation and risk assessment contribute to the development of both internalizing and substance use disorders.
