Aaron Kucyi, PhD
Assistant Professor, Department of Psychological & Brain Sciences, Drexel University
I joined Drexel University as Assistant Professor in fall 2022. I received a BSc in biology at York University and a PhD at the University of Toronto, where I used functional MRI to examine neural dynamics during mind-wandering and rumination in relation to pain perception. I was a postdoctoral fellow in neuroimaging at Harvard Medical School and then a Banting Fellow in cognitive intracranial electrophysiology at Stanford University. My research has been funded by the the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation (BBRF), and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR). Outside of the lab, I enjoy wandering in nature, snowboarding, and exploring Philadelphia.

Lotus Shareef-Trudeau, BA
I am a research coordinator in the Dynamic Brain & Mind Lab. I am involved in an ongoing study that examines EEG ability to measure anticorrelated activity between the default mode and dorsal attention networks using simultaneous EEG-fMRI. More broadly, I am interested in variability in spontaneous thought experience and how neuromodulation interventions may expand access to mental well-being. I received my BA in psychology and French and francophone studies at Swarthmore College. Outside of the lab, I enjoy creative writing and martial arts.
