    Biography:
    I am an Associate Professor of Psychology at the University of Oregon. The central aim of my research is to understand how behavioral, motivational, and neural systems work together to help us pursue our goals. My work combines the distinct strengths of several research methods including functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), cross-sectional and longitudinal survey methods, and laboratory experiments. I teach courses in statistics, neuroimaging, and social psychology. My research and teaching have been recognized with the Early Career Award from the Social-Personality Health Network, the Joseph A. Gengerelli Distinguished Dissertation Award, the UCLA Social Psychology Dissertation Award, the Arthur J. Woodward Peer Mentoring Award and the UCLA Distinguished Teaching Award. I received my PhD in 2010 from the University of California, Los Angeles. My blog, The Motivated Brain, is located at Psychology Today, and I tweet as @Psychologician.
