Research & Publications
Abigail is an MD/PhD candidate working in the lab of Todd Constable. She received her A.B. with highest honors from Princeton in 2013, where she studied psychology (concentration) in the lab of Jonathan Cohen, and received certificates in Quantitative and Computational Neuroscience and French. Following graduation, Abigail received a ReachOut56-81-06 fellowship to support a year working in the healthcare department of ProMujer Nicaragua.
Abigail's research focuses on the application of computational modeling and machine learning techniques to human neuroimaging data to reveal the neural bases of complex cognitive processes, traits, and clinical symptoms. She hopes to integrate this skillset with training as a child and adolescent psychiatrist to yield more precise understandings of the macroscale neural circuits underlying (dys)function. Outside of lab, Abigail works with the Behavioral Health Department at Yale's student-run free clinic (HAVEN), which she directed from 2017-2018, and as a Pivotal Response Treatment clinician at the Child Study Center under the supervision of Dr. Pamela Ventola. She has presented her work at various conferences, including the Society for Neuroscience, Organization for Human Brain Mapping, and Flux Congress meetings, and has received various recognitions for her written work, including an F1000 recommendation in 2018.
