Overview

Jaime is a graduate student in the Cognitive Neuroscience area of the Psychology & Neuroscience Department working with Gregory Samanez-Larkin. After completing his undergraduate degree in Neuroscience and Political Science from the University of Southern California, he spent time at Vanderbilt University as a research analyst and at UCLA as a lab manager. His research interests are in decision neuroscience and how neuroscience research can inform public policy and law.
