About

I am currently a PhD candidate at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. I received my M.A. in psychology (Mind, Brain, & Behavior Research) from San Francisco State University in 2011, and my B.A. in psychology (summa cum laude) from the University of California, Santa Cruz, in 2007. I update my Mendeley profile infrequently. For more information -- including publications and my actual cv -- please see my Academia.edu profile: https://umass.academia.edu/TaraCDennehy
