Aminda-2I am an assistant professor of Psychology at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. I am the PI of the CAPES Lab (Cognitive and Affective Psychophysiology of Experimental Science). Here, we use event-related potentials (ERP) techniques to investigate cognition and emotion interactions.

I received my B.A. in Psychology from the University of Wyoming in 2004. From there, I went to the University of Kansas for graduate school in cognitive psychology. I completed my masters at KU under the advisement of Dr. Joseph Dien in 2007, and went on to complete my PhD there in 2010 under Dr. Ruth Ann Atchley. Following graduate school, I completed two years of postdoctoral training on the Cognitive Psychophysiology Training Grant at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, working with Dr. Wendy Heller.
