Christina earned a B.A. in neuroscience from Pomona College in 2013. She worked as a research assistant at UCLA before becoming the lab manager for the Learning & Decision Making lab at Rutgers University, Newark in 2014. She joined the Egner lab as a Psychology & Neuroscience graduate student in 2016.
Christina is interested in how learning and memory interact and work hand-in-hand with control processes to guide adaptive behavior. She plans to investigate stimulus- and context-control learning using various methodologies (behavior, modeling, fMRI, TMS).
