Nora graduated from the University of San Francisco with a bachelor's degree in psychology. After graduating, Nora pursued post-baccalaureate studies in chemistry and biology, and worked in research, where she studied the neurobiology of depression. Nora is interested in the physiology and biology of PTSD and other trauma-related disorders. She also has interest in exploring how pro-health behaviors, lifestyle changes, and empirically based treatments can be specifically tailored to improve health outcomes and wellness. Nora will apply to a Ph.D. program in clincical health psychology next fall. In her free time, Nora likes to do yoga and hike in the redwoods.

Hi! I'm Hiep and I'm a student at UC Berkeley studying biology. I'm interested in learning more about the brain and PTSD through researching at the THRIVE Lab. I swim, bike and volunteer in my spare time.
My name is Belén and I am a research assistant at the THRIVE lab. I love to study the brain, and I'm particularly excited to explore how neurophysiological processes and structural changes in the brain produce differences in human behavior. In my spare time, I enjoy going on walks, petting cats around the neighborhood, cooking, and watching suspenseful movies.
I'm an undergraduate student at UC Berkeley studying Molecular Environmental Biology and Nutritional Sciences. I hope to pursue a career in medicine and am really enjoying learning about biological mechanisms of psychopathology here in the THRIVE Lab. I like to spend my spare time backpacking, playing music, painting, hanging out with my cat, and volunteering as a doula at the San Francisco General Hospital.
