Laura Pritschet

PhD Candidate

University of California, Santa Barbara

I am a graduate student in Psychological and Brain Sciences at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Under the mentorship of Dr. Emily Jacobs, I leverage techniques from network neuroscience and neuroendocrinology to explore how sex steroid hormones impact human brain function across hormonal transition periods. The goal of my research is to improve the utility of sex hormones as markers of vulnerability for neuropsychiatric and neurological disorders that are disproportionately skewed towards women. Additionally, I am passionate about women’s health research and am an advocate for women’s representation in STEM.
