Jared is a senior at WashU, working toward a B.A. in Cognitive Neuroscience. His current research in the BRAIN Lab focuses on polygenic risk for neuroticism as a moderating factor in the relationships between early life stress, neural reward processing, and risk for anhedonic depression. After graduating this spring, Jared hopes to continue studying the role of Gene x Environment interactions in the development of psychopathology as a graduate student.
In his free time, Jared enjoys befriending dogs, watching movies, and playing piano.
