Line Brotnow

Postgraduate Fellow


Yale University


After a double bachelor’s degree in psychology/sociology from University of Paris, I finished my Msc in Developmental Neuroscience from Yale/UCL in 2013. My dissertation focused on constructing and testing a conceptual model of prenatal maternal psychosocial stress and coping. This year, I will be involved in a project exploring prenatal and genetic influences on externalizing behavior, using both human and animal data. After my fellowship I wish to pursue a doctoral degree in clinical psychology, specializing in clinical work with children and parents. Outside the lab I am an avid yoga practicioner and I volunteer teaching stress reduction techniques to adolescents in New Haven.
