Talia graduated from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2015 with Phi Beta Kappa and Latin honors. Her degrees in psychology with an emphasis in clinical psychology and behavioral neuroscience, combined with her experience in research labs at UCLA Medical Center and UCSF Medical Center have helped her develop a passion for pediatric clinical research specializing in neuropsychiatry and neurology. As a Clinical Research Coordinator, Talia’s primary responsibilities include
performing cognitive testing and autism spectrum disorder assessments on participants, managing administrative support and maintenance of the study protocol for the BDRP, coordinating participant outreach, recruitment, and retention, data and specimen collection, and overall coordination of research activities and participant visits. Talia is particularly interested in the behavioral attributes of autism spectrum disorder that can be seen across different biological expressions and hopes to amass better understanding of the biological basis and features of neuropsychiatric disorders before pursuing a Ph.D. in clinical psychology with a focus on prodromal development in pediatric populations.

When not in the lab, Talia loves hiking the hills of the Bay Area, exploring new exhibits in local art museums, and trying as many San Francisco restaurants as she can.
