Nicole was born and raised in North Vancouver and completed her BSc in Psychology at UBC. She was extremely fortunate to have crossed paths with Dr. Floresco during her undergraduate degree, and is very excited to be pursuing a Master’s degree in the same lab.  Nicole’s research during her undergraduate studies focused on characterizing cortico-striatal and amygdalar circuits that control different aspects of cost/benefit decision making—specifically decisions related to reward uncertainty, or risk.
