Christy is a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the Department of Psychiatry. Her research interests include understanding what role differences in how people process and remember information plays in clinical symptoms such as anxiety, fear, and doubt. Recently, she expanded my research to include pediatric populations. Using a novel task, she am currently working on understanding direction and vicarious fear and safety learning in youth with anxiety.
