Nina Lauharatanahirun, Ph.D.
Nina Lauharatanahirun is a visiting scholar in the Communication Neuroscience Laboratory at the Annenberg School for Communication and U.S. Army Research Laboratory. She received her Ph.D. in Neuroscience and Biological Psychology at Virginia Tech in 2017. Using behavioral economic models and neuroimaging methods, Lauharatanahirun is broadly interested in understanding developmental pathways of social and cognitive processes underlying risky decision-making in both adolescents and adults. Her research aims to understand the inter-subject variability and temporal dynamics of neurobehavioral systems that subserve complex decision-making. This research may identify potential pathways for intervention and reduce risk behaviors that lead to poor health outcomes.
