Wisteria is a first-year Clinical Psychology PhD student at Yale University. After graduating from the University of Michigan in 2018, she spent two years working at the Mass General Hospital, where she studied the altered fear mechanisms in people with persecutory beliefs and helped develop mindfulness-based interventions for at-risk college students. Wisteria’s research focuses on examining the neurobiological and cognitive mechanisms shared between psychosis and affective illnesses, especially at the at-risk stage. She hopes to better understand the neural markers of transdiagnostic risk and resilience, so as to facilitate early detection and intervention among young adults.
In her free time, Wisteria likes to write poetry and do aerial arts.
