Bailey is a student in the Interdepartmental Neuroscience Program at Yale. She received her BS in Neuroscience from the University of Vermont in 2017, where she worked in a child psychiatry lab to examine environmental factors that promote child emotional-behavioral well-being. After graduating, she participated in the 2017 Summer Program for Undergraduate Research in Life and Biomedical Sciences (SPUR-LABS) at UCLA, where she investigated effort-based decision making in adolescents. Afterwards, Bailey worked as a research lab manager in a clinical neuroscience lab at Stanford for three years, where she led neuroimaging observational studies and clinical trials in adults experiencing anxiety and depression. Bailey’s goal is to use neuroimaging to improve our understanding of the etiology and treatment for psychiatric illness. She is also deeply passionate about the intersection between mental health, growth mindset, and achievement. Outside of the lab, she likes to explore nature, shop at trader joes, hip-hop dance, and read.
Bailey fully attributes her successes to her incredible research mentors, thus is excited to pay it forward and help make the graduate school application process as smooth and exciting as possible!
