Debbie Yee

I am a graduate student working with Dr. Todd Braver, interested in researching the neural mechanisms underlying the interactions between motivation, decision-making, and goal directed behavior. Specifically, I am interested in understanding how people are motivated to pursue challenging temporally extended goals, and applying computational methods and models to better understand these mechanisms from neural and behavioral perspectives. 

I am serving on the diversity committee because I want to increase awareness of and contribute to systemic changes that will increase the diversity within academic departments and STEM fields. I am especially passionate about breaking the glass ceiling in leadership positions for women and minorities, and I advocate for reaching out to young students to engender a diverse generation of future scientists.
