Jeni Pathman received her Ph.D. from the Psychology Department at Emory University in 2011.  She completed postdoctoral training at the Center for Mind and Brain at the University of California, Davis.  Her research interests are in cognitive development and developmental cognitive neuroscience.  Dr. Pathman studies the development of declarative memory.  She is especially interested in learning about the development of contextual memory (e.g., memory for time and space), and the development of the processes and neural substrates involved in episodic and autobiographical memory.

Dr. Pathman will be accepting applications for graduate students for Fall 2016. Please email Dr. Pathman to express interest.
