Graduate Student Research Assistant

Michael is a graduate student in the clinical psychology doctoral program at UWM in Dr. Larson's lab. Broadly, he is interested in investigating the underlying neural mechanisms (e.g., threat and reward processing) of psychopathology and (mal)adaptive functioning in childhood and throughout the lifespan. He is also interested in the role self-conscious emotions, such as shame, may play in the maintenance of psychopathology (e.g., PTSD, depression, anxiety). Currently, he is working on the lab’s grant investigating pediatric vulnerability for developing PTSD and depression following acute trauma.
