Sasha Sommerfeldt
Honorary Associate/Fellow

Sasha is a doctoral student in psychology with a clinical research focus. She employs behavioral, neuroimaging, and peripheral-physiological methods to piece apart relationships between the mind, brain, and body, and the role each plays in the experience and regulation of emotion. She is also interested in whether body-directed treatments might ameliorate internalizing symptoms.
