Graduate Research Assistant
Raphaëlle is an exchange scholar completing her Master’s in Developmental Neuroscience & Psychopathology as part of a partnership between University College London and Yale University. She is currently working on her final thesis on the neural correlates of threat processing in anxiety using EEG and computational modeling at the Courage Lab. During her undergraduate years, she investigated the effects of non-clinical paranoia on social decision-making under the supervision of Professor Nichola Raihani at UCL. She also enjoyed volunteering as a responder for Shout, the largest mental health crisis text line in the UK. In the future, she hopes to contribute to the translational application of recent advances in neuroscience to find innovative treatments for mental health difficulties. Outside of the lab, you’ll find Raphaëlle trying out new food places, picking up the guitar and watercoloring.
