Elizabeth (Lisa) Krusemark

Hometown: Athens, GA

Undergraduate: B.S.W. - UGA School of Social Work

                        B.A. - UGA Dept. of Psychology

Graduate Program: MS Psychology, UGA (2005) 

                            PhD Psychology: Social, UGA (2009)

Elizabeth earned her Ph.D. in Social Psychology in July, 2009. She is a third year post-doctoral fellow in the Cognitive Affective Neuroscience Lab at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. She uses brain imaging measures to study how emotion impacts very early sensory processing to help identify threat, and how that response differs among people who have anxiety using both EEG and fMRI. This year she has a publication in the Journal of Neuroscience, which is a top tier journal, as well as three other manuscripts under review. She also had conference presentations accepted for presentation at the Association for Chemoreception Sciences Society and the Cognitive Neuroscience Society Annual Conferences.
