Princess was a graduate student at the Center and the Neuroscience and Public Policy program at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. She's interested in how external factors such as stress and low socioeconomic status interact with brain structure and function to produce internalizing disorders such as anxiety and depression. She is also interested in investigating how different measures of stress and adversity in early life relate to measures of emotional reactivity and resilience in later life.
She has hopes that scientific research on the effects of early life adversity and emotional resilience will inform policy change and provide greater social benefits. She has been involved in examining the role of life stressors in a longitudinal study of family life and brain development.
