Annemieke Apergis- Schoute studies how humans acquire emotions and how to have control over negative states. She did her PhD at New York University where she studied emotional learning.

Currently, she is a postdoc with Professor Trevor Robbins focusing on the interactions between the prefrontal cortex and the amygdala during cognitive control over emotions.

The two-body issue is widespread in academia. It is especially problematic for female academic scientists. Annemieke will give a brief talk about her experience of navigating her and her partner's careers in research.

This will be followed by a Q&A session for you to raise any questions, and a chance to meet other postdocs and share your own experiences.

Lunch will be provided.

This event is free to attend but please register here.
