Lucy graduated from Lewis & Clark College in 2015 with a BA in psychology and French studies. As an undergraduate research assistant, she worked on several projects exploring environmental contributions to the development of social cognition in infancy and early childhood. Before joining the Stress & Development Lab in 2016, Lucy spent a year teaching English in primary schools in France. In her time in the SD Lab, she has worked on several projects broadly investigating neural mechanisms underlying differences in affective and cognitive processes and their relation to psychopathology in youth who have experienced early adversity. Her research interests include investigating how early adversity exposure, especially in the first five years of life, gets “under the skin” to confer risk for psychopathology later in childhood and adolescence. She is particularly interested in examining malleable factors in the home environment that link early adversity exposure with later mental health outcomes and the cognitive and neural pathways by which they serve as risk or protective factors.
