Emily is a research assistant with the Cognitive Bias Modification (CBM) team at the OCD Center and the FOCUS Program. Emily is the main point of contact with all the participants in the Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) research studies. She oversees the day-to-day operations of these studies and runs the study protocol with residential participants and individuals from the community.
Originally from Skokie, Illinois, Emily graduated from Marquette University in May of 2017 with a bachelor’s degree in psychology. At Marquette, she was an undergraduate research assistant at the Neuropsychology and Personality Research Lab, where she was trained in neuropsychological assessments. As an undergraduate student, she tested performance validity measures and documented rates of impaired performance in research and clinical populations.
Upon graduation, Emily wanted to work for an organization that combined excellent patient care with patient-focused research, which led her to Rogers Behavioral Health and the CBM team. She is grateful for the opportunity to work with the wonderful staff and patients at Rogers, while playing a part in developing potential new treatments for individuals struggling with depression.
