Who Am I?

Deirdre came to the US from Ireland in 2000 after receiving her B.S. in Chemical Sciences from the Dublin Institute of Technology and Dublin City University. She joined the Cognitive Neurophysiology lab at The Nathan Kline Institute, Orangeburg, New York in April 2000, where she spent 2.5 years working as a Research Assistant/EEG Technologist. Then she moved to Boston and for 5 years she held the position of chief technologist in the MEG/EEG lab at the Athinoula Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging. She joined the Clinical Cognitive Neuroscience Lab at the Olin Center as a research assistant and the electrophysiology lab manager in August 2007.

Roles & Responsibilities

Here at the Olin center she is responsible for the day to day running of the ERP lab. She will also be involved in studies with the Anxiety Disorder Center
