 Graduate Students


Carter Funkhouser, M.A.

I'm interested in using multiple methods (e.g., psychophysiology, behavior, self-report, neuroimaging) to understand mechanisms by which deficits in reward and/or social processing may connote risk for depression. I am particularly interested in utilizing biological measures to predict diagnosis, longitudinal outcomes, and treatment response, as well as using targeted intervention paradigms to alter biological processes associated with psychopathology.




 
Kelly Correa, M.A.

I am currently interested in how individuals' self-reported and physiological reactions to uncertainty and unpredictable threat may contribute to comorbidity in internalizing psychopathologies.







 
Ari Kaiser, B.A.
akaise5@uic.edu

I'm currently interested in understanding how deficits in reward mechanisms, specifically social reward mechanisms in adolescent populations, relates to risk and maintenance for major depressive disorder. 







 
Elyse Shenberger, B.A.
eshenb2@uic.edu

I am currently interested in interpersonal deficits in internalizing psychopathology and how physiological response and smartphone technology may indicate vulnerability for these disorders.
