Lucinda started working in the SNAP lab in August 2016. She has always been fascinated by neuroscience, and graduated from Whitman College in Walla Walla, WA, with a degree in biology and a minor in chemistry. In addition to research, while at college Lucinda pursued her passion for connecting with others through volunteer programs, doing work such as promoting childhood literacy and caring for elderly residents in a nearby nursing home. She also led multiple weeklong volunteering trips for Whitman undergraduates, and as a peer tutor and academic chair of her sorority, worked to share her love of learning. As one of the members of Scan Team in the SNAP lab, Lucinda primarily runs MRI scans for infants, teens, and adults, and helps coordinate participants and manage data for the BABIES study. Lucinda’s research interests include pediatric neurodevelopment and integrating biological techniques with the rapidly evolving capabilities of MR scanning to improve detection and treatment for psychiatric conditions. Outside of lab, Lucinda loves skiing, playing music, and long walks on the beach with her dog Stella.
