Jenna Reinen is a post-doctoral researcher working with Avram Holmes at Yale University. After graduating from Duke University with an undergraduate degree in biology, she worked in clinical research for several years. She recently completed her PhD at Columbia University, where she studied the interaction of affective processing and learning, memory, and decision making in the human brain, with a special focus on the motivational symptoms in schizophrenia. Jenna’s current research will use functional brain imaging, computational modeling, and behavioral measures to address questions related to the neural mechanisms underlying emotion-cognition interactions, especially as they pertain to clinical populations.
