Monica Rosenberg, Ph.D.
Monica Rosenberg is an Assistant Professor of Psychology and member of the Committees on Computational Neuroscience and Neurobiology at the University of Chicago. Before coming to Chicago, she received her Ph.D. and postdoctoral training in the Department of Psychology at Yale. Before that, she was an undergraduate at Brown, where she studied cognitive neuroscience. Monica’s work uses functional MRI, behavioral experiments, and machine learning methods to investigate how we pay attention and understand the consequences of attention fluctuations for memory and learning.
Jin is the lab manager for the CAB Lab. He is interested in the neural and cognitive dynamics during narrative perception and recall. Jin received his B.S. from Peking University and his M.A. from the MA Program in the Social Sciences (MAPSS) at the University of Chicago. Outside the lab, Jin likes playing with his cat Nap, playing basketball, and listening to Mayday songs.
Nia is a graduate student in the Committee for Neurobiology MD/PhD Program. They are interested in developmental trajectories of attention and the impact of social and environmental factors on sustained attention. Outside of lab, Nia likes watching women’s sports, walking through parks or cuddling with their cat.
Anna is a graduate student in the Cognitive Psychology Program. Anna is interested in how aspects of attention change over time and across individuals. When she’s not in lab, you can usually find Anna out for a run or trying to find the best chips and salsa in the city.
Ziwei is a graduate student in the Cognitive Psychology Program. She is interested in the neural underpinnings of human learning and how attention helps us achieve flexible learning behaviors. Ziwei likes some good music, singing, watching movies and genuine human connections!
Wanzhi (Libby) Lyu
Libby is currently in the MA Program in Social Sciences, Psychology concentration. She received her B.S. degree from the University of Iowa. Libby is interested in the neural mechanisms of sustained attention and how sustained attention influences other cognitive abilities. During her free time, she relaxes and regains energy by spending time with her cat.
Xiaochen is a second-year graduate student in the Computational Social Science program. He is interested in applying computational analysis methods to neuroimaging data. During his free time, he spends time with his friends in the theater club, and they often showcase their performances at the Reynolds Club towards the end of each quarter.
Samantha is an undergraduate in the college, expecting to graduate in 2025 with a major in Psychology and Economics. She is interested in the underlying neural mechanisms of sustained attention and memory. When not working, you can find her swimming for the Varsity team and spending time outdoors.
Isaac is an undergraduate in the College expecting to graduate with the class of 2027. He is interested in the application of computer science principles to research. When not studying or working, he enjoys playing chess and listening to podcasts at double speed.
Taysha is an undergraduate student at the college, expecting to graduate with the Class of 2024 with a degree in Neuroscience and a minor in Visual Arts. She is interested in studying fluctuations in sustained attention and memory. In her free time, she enjoys hanging out with her friends, making jewelry, and baking!
Anu is an undergraduate in the College, expecting to graduate in the Class of 2024 with a degree in Neuroscience. She is interested in the mechanisms of sleep, as well as the intersection of sleep and memory. In her free time, you can find her dancing or drawing.
Laura is an undergraduate in the College expecting to graduate with the Class of 2024 with degrees in Cognitive Science and Biological Sciences, specializing in Quantitative Biology. She is interested in studying adolescent attention and cognitive development using computational modeling. When not working, you can find her crocheting, cooking, and playing with her cat.
