Olin Neuropsychiatry Research Center/Yale
I have a background in Clinical and Neuro-Cognitive Psychology, and earned my PhD from the University of Salzburg, Austria, for neuroimaging research on patients with Schizophrenia. My main interest is studying the diagnostic overlap, e.g., of patients with Autism Spectrum Disorder and Schizophrenia. In my research, I mainly work with fMRI and eye-tracking. I am passionate about mentoring and empowering young researchers, as well as science communication (https://biomentorhub.ro/en/mentor/lavinia-carmen-uscatescu/)..
