Jessica graduated Summa Cum Laude with a B.A in Psychology and a minor in Neuroscience from the University of San Francisco. Her research interests include understanding the neurophysiology of mental health disorders, such as addiction and PTSD. With a natural drive to help people in need, Jessica also has a passion for clinical psychology in the context of prevention and intervention work. These dual interests led to her decision of pursuing a doctorate degree related to clinical psychology and neuroscience. Currently, Jessica is lead coordinator on two projects at Neuroscape: an adolescent cognitive training study to improve attention and the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Research Society (MAPS) long-term follow up study assessing the efficacy of MDMA-assisted therapy for PTSD patients.
