Jeremy Hogeveen, PhD: Before starting as an Assistant Professor of Psychology at UNM in 2018, Jeremy trained across three countries including Canada (Wilfrid Laurier University, PI: Sukhvinder Obhi), the United Kingdom (Birkbeck College, PIs: Geoffrey Bird & Clare Press), and the United States (Northwestern University, PI: Jordan Grafman; University of California–Davis, PI: Marjorie Solomon). Jeremy's research investigates the cognitive and affective neuroscience of psychopathology. Specifically, his primary interests focus on the neural circuits underlying emotional awareness, motivated decision making, and cognitive control in both healthy and pathological populations. Beyond research, Jeremy likes to run, listen to records, support the Toronto Maple Leafs, cook/eat good food, and hang out with his family.

Graduate Students:


Ethan Campbell: Ethan graduated in 2017 from Centre College with a B.S. in Behavioral Neuroscience. He joined the lab in Fall, 2019 from the University of Kentucky where he worked as a clinical research assistant in human behavioral pharmacology. Ethan's research interests concern the effects of substance use and addictions on the brain mechanisms underlying behavior and emotional processing. He is also interested in how neuroimaging research can be better leveraged to understand people who use drugs and their experiences, as well as to treat substance use disorders more effectively. In his free time he enjoys going to concerts, movies, reading, and trivia.


Teagan Mullins: Teagan has been working as a research assistant in Dr. Vince Clark’s lab where she worked on neurostimulation and cognitive enhancement.  She graduated from Vanderbilt University with a M.Ed. in Special Education where she worked on creating and implementing a comprehensive intervention for students with Autism Spectrum Disorders.  She completed her B.A. from NYU in psychology with a minor in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Studies.  Teagan’s research interests include examining biomarkers of Autism and other developmental psychopathology through fMRI, as well as examining co-morbidities and looking at transdiagnostic features.  Outside of the lab, Teagan enjoys hanging out with her many pets, reading, rock climbing, and traveling.


Cidney Benta: Cidney graduated from the University of New Mexico with a B.S. in Psychology and Biology. Since then she has been working as a research assistant and coordinator in Dr. Mayer’s lab, where they studied the effects of traumatic brain injury on different populations. Cidney’s research interests include investigating the developmental trajectory of healthy adolescents, as well as those who experience traumatic brain injury or other pathology during development. She is also interested in examining the potential therapeutic and/or deleterious effects of medical cannabis for the use of chronic neurological and psychological disorders, as well as the development of standardized practices for the study of cannabis. She spends her free time trying new restaurants, camping, and spending time with her dogs.

Research Assistants:


Maggie Austin: Maggie graduated from the University of New Mexico with a B.S. in Psychology and a minor in Biology. During her time in undergraduate, she completed an honors thesis on early biomarkers for Alzheimer’s disease with Dr. Benjamin Clark as her mentor. Post-graduation, she spent a year working and learning in the Motivational Interviewing Lab at CASAA. Maggie’s research interests include neuroimaging, learning and memory, and substance use disorders. Outside of the lab, she enjoys cooking, tabletop gaming, rock climbing, and using all of the eyeshadow at once.


Kamila Giermakowski Rios: Kamila is an undergraduate student at Barnard College of Columbia University, where she is pursuing a BA in Neuroscience & Behavior with a minor in sociology. A native New Mexican, Kamila is joining the lab for the summer, hoping to get experience running human subjects and working with neuroimaging methods. She is broadly interested in psychological disorders and social neuroscience. Outside of research, Kamila is passionate about social justice, painting, and hiking.


Lauren Brown: Lauren is finishing up a B.S. degree in Psychology with a minor in Statistics from the University of New Mexico. She has worked as a research assistant in Dr. Hogeveen’s lab since Summer 2022. She is a member of the Psychology Honors Program and is conducting research on the impact of short-form video addiction on attention. Her interests include the neural bases of attention, the physiological manifestations of neuropathology, and neuroimaging. In the Hogeveen Lab, Lauren assists in outreach and running participant visits. Outside of research, Lauren enjoys hanging out in coffee shops, hiking, and yoga.
