Emily Scott is a Graduate Research/Teaching Assistant in Cognition and Neural Science at the University of Utah, studying how attention and stress are modulated by exposure to natural environments. In particular, Emily is interested in the coupling between neurophysiological measures (e.g., electroencephalography or EEG) and peripheral physiological measures (e.g., heart-rate variability or HRV) in restorative settings. Emily graduated with distinction from the George Washington University in 2013 with a degree in psychology and previously worked in health behavior and attention labs. Before attending graduate school, Emily also worked for a research company called Westat, where she helped coordinate national health policy and education research projects. Emily received her M.S. in psychology from the University of Utah in 2017, and she is expected to obtain her PhD in 2020/2021.
