Jill grew up on Long Island, NY, and graduated from Columbia University in 2018 with a B.A. in Neuroscience and Behavior. During her time at Columbia, Jill worked as a research assistant in Dr. Larisa Heiphetz’s Social and Moral Cognition Lab, and as a lab manager in Dr. Darcy Kelley’s lab on auditory perception and vocalization. In the Gotlib lab, Jill is the project coordinator for the March of Dimes Preschool Follow-Up. She also contributes to the lab’s neuroimaging work, running MRI and fNIRS scans with various populations. Broadly, Jill’s research interests include neurological and psychiatric disorders, developmental psychobiology, and psychopharmacology. In the years to come, Jill plans to continue her studies by pursuing a Ph.D. in Neuroscience. When Jill’s not in the lab, you can find her baking cookies, making art, and finding any excuse to be outside.
