Dr. Dager completed her Ph.D. in experimental psychology at the University of California San Diego, focusing on the influence of heavy marijuana use on brain functioning during adolescent neurodevelopment. She joined the faculty at Yale in 2008, serving as the Administrative Director of the Center for the Translational Neuroscience of Alcoholism. She subsequently moved to the Olin Neuropsychiatry Research Center, where she leads multimodal magnetic resonance imaging studies to characterize the neural precursors and consequences of substance involvement during adolescence and young adulthood.
