Sarah Grace Uhouse is a fourth year Clinical Psychology doctoral student working with Dr. Marsha Bates in the Center of Alcohol & Substance Use Studies at Rutgers University. After graduating from Vanderbilt University with a BA in 2014, she worked as a post-baccalaureate research assistant at the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism in Bethesda, Maryland. There, she developed an interest in conducting mechanism-based research to answer questions concerning the development and maintenance of substance use disorders. She joined the Cardiac Neuroscience Laboratory as a graduate student in 2016. Her master’s thesis examined the effects of an exercise intervention on resting state connectivity in a cognitive-control network in depressed individuals. She is looking forward to continuing to pursue her research interests through her dissertation work over the upcoming years.
